Description:

1844 Half Dime, Toned PR67
The Finest Known
Ex: Pittman-Kaufman

1844 H10C PR67 NGC. The 1844 proof half dime from the Phil Kaufman collection remains the finest certified specimen certified by NGC or PCGS. It is pedigreed to the John Jay Pittman Collection sold by David Akers Numismatics, Inc., October 21-23, 1997.

The Pittman coin was part of an 1844 proof set "in the original case of issue." In his description of the piece, Akers says: "In Proof, this issue is a great rarity; only 6-8 proofs are known to exist." NGC and PCGS have certified a total of 13 specimens (of course, some of these are likely resubmissions). The former service has seen a PR63, four PR64s, one PR65s, and a PR67, the Pittman-Kaufman piece finest certified. PCGS has graded two PR62 coins, a PR63, a PR64, one PR65 Cameo, and two PR66 pieces. Out of 14 certified submissions, we are only able to track down five different coins that have been graded by these two services.

The fully mirrored fields of this remarkable Superb Gem yield impressive contrast with the mildly frosted motifs, especially when the coin is rotated under a light. Beautiful cobalt-blue and reddish-gold toning adorns both sides, and the strike is complete throughout. The surfaces are impeccably preserved, heightening even more the coin's outstanding beauty. A tiny as-made planchet depression beneath the I in DIME and a faint linear mark between the stem and the last A in AMERICA serve to identify this particular piece. A simply amazing example of this rare proof.
Ex: Numismatic Gallery (4/1948); John Jay Pittman (David Akers, 10/1997), lot 833; Philip Kaufman. Part of Pittman's 1844 proof set; FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2008), lot 3023.(Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 235C, PCGS# 4420)
