    The Eliasberg Gem Proof 1849/8 Seated Dime

    1849/8 10C PR65 NGC. Ex: Eliasberg. Breen-3256. Greer-103. A magnificent Gem proof example of this rare issue. Dark blue and gold toning on the obverse, slightly mottled yet attractive. The reverse color is more evenly distributed, with rose-gold at the center, darker gold in the fields and most of the devices are lettering are framed in deep blue shades. Impeccably struck throughout, and carefully preserved since the time of issue. The overdate feature is clear with a loupe. Identifiable by a minute lint mark shaped like a backwards "7" right of the date in the field. The mintage was likely fewer than 10 pieces in all, and this is the third finest of those graded by either PCGS or NGC. An exceptional opportunity for the advanced specialist.
    Ex: Louis S. Eliasberg, Sr., Collection (Bowers and Merena, 5/96, lot 1137).
    From The Larj Collection.
