    (1838) J-A1838-1 Seated Liberty Dime Splasher

    1838 10C J-A1838-1, P-3049, R.8. MS63 PCGS. Die trial for the Liberty Seated Dime, from an unfinished die with a single star placed between Liberty's head and her pole. White metal splasher. It has been believed that this die trial is unique, with the only known example in the Library Company of Philadelphia. This is only the second known example. The flash around the border is differently shaped, thus confirming that this is a second representative. Light gray surfaces with hints of gold color. The fields are subdued with considerable brilliant luster. These splashers are extremely thin and light, and are often brittle, sometimes breaking into pieces if not handled extremely carefully. A small group of these pieces in the present sale are all in exceptional condition.
