Description:
Splendid 1852 Dime, PR67
The Finest Known
1852 10C PR67 NGC. Ex: P. Kaufman. This extraordinarily scarce 1852 proof dime from the Eliasberg Collection is a featured rarity in the Kaufman collection. The Phil Kaufman piece is the finest of what is thought to be about eight extant specimens. It is virtually certain that the 13 coins certified by NGC and PCGS contain a number of pieces that were resubmitted in the hopes of attaining a higher grade. Our research identifies six distinct 1852 proof dimes:

1. PR67 Cameo NGC. The Kaufman specimen.
Louis E. Eliasberg, Sr. Collection (Bowers and Merena, 5/1996), lot 1144.

2. PR66 PCGS.
Turtle Rock Collection (Superior Galleries, 2/2008), lot 504.

3. PR65 PCGS.
Bowers and Merena (1/1999), lot 1087; Superior (1/2004), lot 216.

4. PR65 NGC.
1995 ANA Auction (Heritage, 8/1995), lot 6031; Bowers and Merena (8/1999), lot 109; Superior Galleries(10/2000), lot 4344; Heritage (1/2007). Lot 876.

5. PR64 NGC.
Heritage (10/2001), lot 6033; possibly from The Allen F. Lovejoy Collection (Stack's, 10/1990), lot 264; Stack's Spring Sale (4/1978), lot 493.

6. PR60 PCGS.
The Piedmont Sale (Superior Galleries, 1/1996), lot 1349.

Additional appearances

A. Choice Proof.
J.S. Morris (3/1947); John Jay Pittman Collection (David Akers, 10/1997), lot 611.

B. Proof.
Lorin G. Parmelee Collection (New York Stamp and Coin, 6/1890), per Breen

C. Proof.
World's Greatest Collection (Numismatic Gallery, 5/1945), lot 543; Adolph Friedman Collection; 1946 ANA (Numismatic Gallery, 8/1946), lot 273.

D. Proof.
1954 ANA (Federal Coin Exchange), per Breen.

E. Proof.
Stack's (10/1981).

Low intensity champagne, cobalt-blue, and pastel violet-purple toning races over both sides of this splendid dime from the Kaufman collection. Mirrored fields establish noticeable contrast with the satiny design elements, all of which reveal bold detail. Even Liberty's foot and sandal are completely separate, and all of the ribbing is visible on the reverse leaves. As expected for the Superb Gem grade, the immaculately preserved surfaces are devoid of imperfections.
From The Phil Kaufman Collection of Early Proof Sets, Part Four. (NGC ID# 23C8, PCGS# 4739)
