    Brilliant 1837 No Stars Select Proof Dime

    1837 10C No Stars PR63 NGC. The Large Date variety, which has a flat top to the 3. It is estimated that around 30 proofs were struck of this issue. To date, 45 pieces have been certified in all grades by NGC and PCGS--calling into question either the original mintage estimate or the number of coins resubmitted (or possibly both). This is a lovely piece that is unquestionably a proof striking even without checking the proof diagnostics. The fields are deeply mirrored from rim to rim and the striking definition is complete in all areas. However, checking the diagnostics for proofs, the die spur is present over the first T in STATES, and the die scratch can easily be seen that runs through ES O.
    Each side is brilliant and lightly hairlined. A horizontal lint mark is visible between the pole and Liberty's upper arm, and another extends from the field above Liberty's left (facing) arm across the forearm. A small abrasion left of the rock will help to identify the coin.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 23BN, PCGS# 4718)

    Weight: 2.67 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
