    1843 Seated Liberty Dime, PR64
    Scarce Early Proof Issue

    1843 10C F-103, R.7, PR64 NGC. Early proof experts believe between eight to 12 proof 1843 Seated Liberty dimes survive from a small but unknown number struck. This is a Choice example with pleasing autumn-gold and charcoal-gray toning surrounded by steel-blue borders. The strike is sharp as expected, including a triangular die chip at 9 o'clock on the obverse rim that is diagnostic for the proof issue.

    Reflective mirrored fields glitter beneath the rich toning. Frosted central elements share the same attractive colors, but show only minimal contrast. We have handled a small number of 1843 proofs over the years -- on multiple occasions for some of the coins -- but no more than four or five individual specimens, which never fail to bring strong prices. This example is a new addition to our archives. Census: 3 in 64, 5 finer (4/18).

    The outcome of the auction far exceeded my best hopes and would not likely have been as successful with out your sound advice on where to present the coin and how best to set the reserve. Throughout the process your availability , support and knowledge were exceptional.
