Transitional Judd-233 1859 Dime
'Coin Without a Country,' PR63

1859 10C Transitional PR63 PCGS Secure. The popular 1859 transitional dime was created when Mint Director James Ross Snowden suggested using the reverse die adopted for half dime and dime coinage of 1860 in combination with the starred obverse of 1840-1859. Neither die contained the legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, creating the "coin without a country." It is believed that fewer than two dozen are known, and the traditional mintage figure is just 12 pieces. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. The present example is an appealing Select proof, lustrous and strongly silver with a few dots of milky toning on the lower reverse. Horizontal hairlines through the obverse fields contribute to the grade.(Registry values: N1793) (NGC ID# 23CH, PCGS# 4749)
