    Exceptional Gem Prooflike 1827 Dime, Ex: Pittman

    1827 10C MS65 Prooflike NGC. JR-12, R.1. A bright specimen with little or no color. The fields are quite reflective as might be expected on a proof of the time and most probably a result of some unusual die preparation and polishing at the mint. Interestingly enough, proof 1827 dimes are known with this same die paring. Close examination reveals lack of highpoint definition on the eagle's leg and claw, also Liberty's hair on the obverse. In our opinion, this coin was not struck with multiple blows of the coining press (as a proof might have been) to further define the smaller details. Still, an exceptionally clean, noteworthy example that should be closely examined by prospective buyers.
    Ex: John J. Pittman Collection (David Akers, 10/1997), lot 558 where it realized $16,500. Purchased in 1952 from Mike Kolman for $21.50. (#4504) (Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 2375, PCGS# 4504)

    Weight: 2.70 grams

    Metal: 89.24% Silver, 10.76% Copper
