Description

    Richly Toned PR66 1848 Dime
    The Pittman-Kaufman Coin

    1848 10C PR66 NGC. Ex: Pittman-Kaufman. Walter Breen (1989) enumerates eight examples of the very rare 1848 proof dime, while David Akers estimates that eight to 10 specimens exist, including two impounded in the American Numismatic Society and Smithsonian Institution. These figures are in line with the certified population figures, especially when resubmissions are taken into account.
    Magnificent toning adorns both sides of this Premium Gem proof, with light orange-gold on the obverse accented with splashes of sky-blue. Orange-gold and violet occupy the central reverse, flanked by iridescent greenish-gold. The design elements are crisply struck with complete separation of Liberty's foot and sandal, and full ribbing on the reverse wreath. Deep mirrors highlight the motifs on each immaculate side.
