    1880 Dime, Conditionally Rare PR68
    Ex: Gardner

    1880 10C F-101, R.3, PR68 NGC. Gene Gardner owned three examples of the 1880 Seated dime issue in PR67 and PR68, but of the three he considered this piece to have the best eye appeal, giving it an "8" on his scale of 1-10 -- high praise from such an aesthetically attuned numismatist. This immaculate Superb Gem proof will be a standout coin in any assemblage of Seated dimes. Rich toning is imbued with salmon-pink and electric-blue iridescence. The toning is nowhere near deep enough to impede the appreciation of the glistening, reflective fields and razor-sharp devices. No distracting hairlines or contact marks appear on either side of this solidly graded Superb Gem. Census: 7 in 68 (2 in 68 ), 0 finer (8/16).
