    1847 Seated Liberty Dime, MS63
    Low Survival Rate

    1847 10C MS63 PCGS. CAC. Fortin-103. Soft, frosty silver surfaces host delicate champagne toning on both sides of this pleasing Select Mint State dime. The strike is excellent, despite slight reverse weakness on a few of the leaves.

    Variety: Fortin-103, with the slight protrusion from the denticles below the 7 in the date. The die break on the reverse mentioned in Fortin from below the bowknot to the ribbon and on to the rim is present. A die break on the obverse links stars 11 and 12.

    Population Data (7/14): PCGS has certified four submissions in MS63 and three finer examples.

    Heritage Commentary: The 1847 is a surprisingly elusive issue from a mintage of 245,000 coins. PCGS has only certified 16 in Mint State grades.

    Consignor Commentary: I have always liked this coin, especially for the grade. It is so fresh and well-struck, but there is probably enough chatter and lines in the fields to account for the grade. Not at the top of the rankings, this coin could still be close to being included in the Condition Census.

    Provenance: American Numismatic Rarities (11/2004), lot 572.(Registry values: N1793)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 238E, PCGS# 4589)
