Description:
Exceptional, Toned MS68 1874 Arrows Dime
1874 10C Arrows MS68 NGC. The increase in weight from 2.49 grams to 2.50 grams resulted in arrows being placed at the date of the 1873-1874 Seated dime issues. While the branch mint deliveries are scarce to rare in all grades, P-mint representatives are encountered with enough frequency to serve as type coins for most collectors. This status does not, however, apply to the present Superb Gem. One of only three MS68 examples known to both NGC and PCGS (12/07), this coin exudes both originality and perfection. Both sides are richly frosted and free of even the most trivial abrasion. In addition to its technical superiority, this coin's gorgeous toning scheme also places it head and shoulders above all 1874 Arrows dimes that we have handled in recent memory. Streaks of crimson-lavender, blue-green, and cobalt-blue color are noted over the otherwise golden patina on the obverse. The reverse displays a similar golden-gray colored base with a swath of charcoal-cobalt, crimson-lavender, and electric-blue toning over the left quadrant. A coin of singular beauty.
Ex: Philadelphia 2000 (8/2000), lot 6944.(Registry values: N1) (NGC ID# 23BK, PCGS# 4668)
