Description:
Fascinating 1860-S Stars Obverse Dime, MS66
Single Finest Certified at Either Service
1860-S 10C MS66 NGC. The only 1860-dated Stars Obverse dime, as none of the type were made in Philadelphia or New Orleans. The 1860-S dime is a fascinating issue, created in the window between the opening of the San Francisco Mint in 1854 and the beginning of the Civil War in 1861. The issue is almost buried in the Guide Book between the famous Transitional issues and the Legend Obverse, but the 1860-S was produced only with the Stars Obverse type of 1838-53 and 1856-60. Although the recorded mintage is 140,000 pieces, examples are extremely rare in Mint State. This issue is also the last bearing the mintmark within the wreath, except for some of the 1875-CC and 1875-S dimes. Interestingly, PCGS seems confused about the issue, as they list it out of order in their online Population Report among the Legend Obverse dimes!
The present coin is almost brilliant, with just the slightest overlay of pale golden patina. The date is lightly impressed, as is characteristic, but the piece is sharply defined elsewhere, except on the leaf high points. Thick mint frost abundantly coats the surfaces. The single finest certified at NGC or PCGS (2/09).
From The Joseph C. Thomas Collection.(Registry values: N1) (NGC ID# 2397, PCGS# 4622)
