Description

    1859 Transitional Dime, Judd-233, PR66
    The Louis Eliasberg Coin

    1859 10C Transitional PR66 PCGS. CAC. Judd-233, Pollock-280, High R.6.

    The motive behind the so-called "Coin Without a Country" was not a tryout of the new design, according to the Eliasberg cataloger: "The distribution arrangement for the 1859 transitional dime is not known, but it certainly must have been regarded as a delicacy when it was struck, significantly during the term of Mint Director James Ross Snowden." Nevertheless, the Judd-233 retains considerable popularity, especially when it is as attractive as the Eliasberg coin. Dappled green-gold and blue patina drapes gleaming surfaces. The strike is sharp, the preservation excellent. Certified in a green-label holder. Population: 2 in 66, 0 finer (3/12).
    Ex: Eliasberg (5/1996), lot 1168.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 23CH, PCGS# 4749)
