Description:
Rarely Offered 1856 Dime, PR63
1856 10C PR63 PCGS. Small Date. The obverse devices are doubled, as noted by Breen (1977). How many proofs were struck is an open question, perhaps as many as 100 pieces. The number extant is also unknown, but it is believed that between 35 and 50 examples may exist today in all grades. Each side of this piece has variegated blue, violet, and gray-rose toning but the underlying proof mirrors are still apparent. There are no obvious contact marks on each side, just a few light hairlines that account for the grade. There are, however, a series of as-struck die striations in the lower and left obverse field. Population: 7 in 63, 8 finer (4/10).
From The ALG Collection of Proof Dimes. (NGC ID# 23CA, PCGS# 4745)
