1874 Arrows Dime, MS67+
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.

Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 23BK, PCGS# 4668)
Weight: 2.49 grams
