Description

1861 Seated Dime, MS67
One of Only Two Superb Coins Certified

1861 10C MS67 NGC. Type Two Obverse. The 1861 is a relatively common date and the second year of the Legend Obverse type. Apparently Longacre rethought the obverse hub and slightly modified it in 1861. While available up to MS65 condition, and even occasionally in MS66, the 1861 is very rare in MS67. In fact, only two pieces have been so graded. The other Superb coin, a piece we sold in February 2009, is deeply toned. This example is untoned and exhibits rich, satiny mint luster. The strike is strong throughout, and the only ripple in the surface is a very faint, diagonal grease stain on the right side of the reverse.(Registry values: N1) (NGC ID# 239F, PCGS# 4633)
