    1838-O No Stars Dime, MS64
    Brilliant and Strongly Struck

    1838-O 10C No Stars, F-101a, R.5, MS64 PCGS. Ex: Simpson. Rim cuds at 2, 8, and 9 o'clock on the obverse and the repunched mintmark are diagnostic. Gerry Fortin writes that F-101a is "much more difficult to locate" and suggests a premium of 30% to 50% over the regular F-101 and F-102 die pairs. Naturally, all 1838-O dimes are elusive in Mint State and certainly rare in MS64. This near-Gem is totally brilliant with vibrant satin luster. Liberty's head, foot, shield, and the wreath exhibit impressively strong definition.
