Description

Elusive 1852 Seated Dime, PR65

1852 10C PR65 NGC. Breen (1988) speculated that only eight proofs had been struck of this date. Although there is no verification for this, proof 1852 dimes are undeniably very rare, with only 12 appearances, including resubmissions, at the major grading services to date and a similar number of appearances at public auction since 1990. Unlike many early (pre-1858) proofs, this coin is exactingly struck, with uniformly sharp detail, fully reflective fields, and notable die striations apparent on the obverse. Much of the surface is toned gold, with light splashes of burgundy on the reverse and the area near Liberty's head ranging from burgundy to cobalt blue. A few light hairlines, only evident under a glass, appear to separate this piece from an even finer grade. Census: 4 in 65, 1 finer (3/09).
From The Joseph C. Thomas Collection. (NGC ID# 23C8, PCGS# 4739)
