Phenomenal 1857 Dime, PR671857 10C PR67 NGC. Ex: P. Kaufman. Both sides of this Superb Gem proof dime from the Phil Kaufman collection are awash with low intensity cobalt-blue and golden-tan patina, accented with whispers of lavender at the margins. The glassy fields highlight the satiny motifs, dramatically so when the coin is rotated ever so slightly beneath a light source. The strike is outstanding, as boldness is apparent on the star centers and ribbing of the leaves, and Liberty's foot and sandal are completely separated. Close inspection with a loupe reveals immaculately preserved surfaces. Simply stated, these qualities combine to generate phenomenal eye appeal, and to place the Kaufman coin very near the top of the perhaps 20 to 25 proof 1857 dimes known.
