    1874 Arrows Dime, MS67+
    Extraordinary Quality
    Two-Year Type

    1874 10C Arrows MS67+ PCGS. CAC. Fortin-Unlisted. Ex: Simpson. This die combination does not appear to match any of those listed by Seated dime expert Gerry Fortin. The left foot of the 1 is centered over the dentil directly below the shield point, and the arrows are about level. The lower obverse is slightly soft, as are the rims around each side, but Liberty's head exhibits good detail and the kernels are visible on the right ear of corn. What sets this 1874 Arrows dime apart, however, is its outstanding color, luster, and preservation. There are no marks visible to the unaided eye. Radiant cartwheel luster shines through delicate, natural shades of pale gold, green, blue, orange, magenta, and violet. Eye appeal is extraordinary for this desirable two-year type coin, which we expect will generate spirited bidding. Population: 10 in 67 (4 in 67+), 3 finer. CAC: 5 in 67, 1 finer (7/20).
