Richly Toned PR66 1848 Dime
The Pittman-Kaufman Coin

1848 10C PR66 NGC. Ex: Pittman-Kaufman. Walter Breen (1989) enumerates eight examples of the very rare 1848 proof dime, while David Akers estimates that eight to 10 specimens exist, including two impounded in the American Numismatic Society and Smithsonian Institution. These figures are in line with the certified population figures, especially when resubmissions are taken into account.
Magnificent toning adorns both sides of this Premium Gem proof, with light orange-gold on the obverse accented with splashes of sky-blue. Orange-gold and violet occupy the central reverse, flanked by iridescent greenish-gold. The design elements are crisply struck with complete separation of Liberty's foot and sandal, and full ribbing on the reverse wreath. Deep mirrors highlight the motifs on each immaculate side.
Ex: World's Greatest Collection (Numismatic Gallery, 5/1945), lot 534; Friedman Collection; 1946 ANA Auction (Numismatic Gallery, 8/1946), lot 270; John Jay Pittman Collection; Pittman I (David Akers, 10/1997), lot 601; The Phil Kaufman Collection of Early Proof Sets, Part Four (Heritage, 8/2008), lot 1817.
