    1845 Seated Dime, PR65
    Fortin-109, Repunched Date

    1845 10C PR65 NGC. CAC. Fortin-109, R.7. All proof 1845 dimes appear to be from the same die pair, with a high date showing a slight downward slope from left to right. There is no indication of repunching of the 1, with clear doubling of 845. Tiny die chips are visible at the points of stars 3 through 6, and star 13. The top surface of the digits are blunt, a characteristic identical to other known proofs. In our January 2008 sale of the Kaufman Collection, we presented a roster of six known 1845 proof dimes. Since that time, one other example certified PR61 PCGS appeared in our March 2009 sale; this piece from the Newman Collection is an eighth known proof that is tied for fourth finest.

    This lovely Gem exhibits full mirrored fields around satin devices with cobalt-blue and iridescent toning over its ivory surfaces. A few trivial lint marks include one on Liberty's left forearm (to the viewer's right) just above the drapery, and another in the left obverse field.
    From The Eric P. Newman Collection. (NGC ID# 23BZ, PCGS# 4732)

    Weight: 2.67 grams

    Truth Seeker: The Life of Eric P. Newman (softcover)
    A powerful and intimidating dealer of the 1960s, backed by important colleagues, was accused of selling fraudulent gold coins and ingots to unsuspecting numismatists. Who would go up against a man like that and, over the course of decades, prove the fraud? Who would expose a widely respected scholar as a thief, then doggedly pursue recovery of coins that the scholar had stolen from an embarrassed numismatic organization, all over the objections of influential collectors who had bought coins with clouded titles? Eric P. Newman would - and did. Reserve your copy today.
