Description

    Lightly Toned 1857 Seated Dime, PR67
    Tied for Finest Known

    1857 10C PR67 NGC. Both sides of this Superb Gem proof dime, formerly in 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 satiny motifs, dramatically so when the coin is rotated beneath a light. The strike is outstanding, showing bold detailing on the star centers and leaf venation, and Liberty's foot and sandal are completely separated. The surfaces are immaculately preserved. The phenomenal eye appeal puts this piece near the top of the perhaps 20 to 25 proof 1857 dimes known. Census: 3 in 67, 0 finer (8/12).
    Ex: Phil Kaufman Collection / Baltimore ANA Signature (Heritage, 7/2008), lot 1827.
    From The Greensboro Collection, Part I. (NGC ID# 23CB, PCGS# 4746)
