The Ultimate Type Coin
It is fascinating to note that in the NGC Census Report, there are only two Liberty Seated dimes of any variety graded MS69, and both are Arrows pieces, one the 1874 Arrows coin offered here, the other an 1853 Arrows dime; by extension, the two short-lived Arrows subtypes are represented in MS69, whereas the other, much longer-lived varieties have no NGC-certified examples at that level (3/09). The PCGS Population Report adds just one other MS69 to the combined certified population, the Eliasberg 1845-O dime that outgrades its nearest competitor by seven points.
As one might imagine, this is an exquisitely preserved survivor, frosty and undeniably beautiful. Rich peripheral patina, largely cerulean and blue-green with occasional reddish-gold elements, surrounds immensely lustrous and untoned centers. It is scarcely possible to imagine how this dime came through more than a century of tumultuous time with none but the tiniest of flaws, yet it has, and its next owner is certain to treasure it.
