Description

Eye-Catching 1858 Dime, PR66

1858 10C PR66 NGC. The Mint first began widespread marketing of proofs to collectors in 1858, but experts disagree on the number of 1858 dimes struck in that format. Breen (1988) writes that "possibly about 80 were made," while the Guide Book estimates 300+ proofs were minted. NGC and PCGS combined report 253 specimens in all grades, but that number is undoubtedly high due to multiple submissions of the same coins.
The present coin boasts magnificent toning that enhances the appeal. Concentric circles of yellow, cobalt-blue, and teal surround the lightly toned centers. Several leaves in the wreath are weakly struck, but the rest of the details are sharp. This attractively toned and powerfully lustrous piece would suit even the most discerning eye. Census: 9 in 66, 3 finer (6/09).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 23CC, PCGS# 4747)
