    Description

    1863 Dime, Patinated PR66+ Cameo
    Rare in This Numerical Grade and Finish

    1863 10C PR66+ Cameo PCGS. CAC. F-101, R.4. Ex: Tall Grass Prairie Collection. This date had a proof mintage limited to only 460 pieces. Ironically, examples are more available than the business strikes from a mintage of 14,000 pieces, survivors of which are rare in all grades. One might surmise then that added pressure is put on the proofs by date collectors. This high-end Premium Gem displays remarkable field-device contrast, especially on the obverse. Reddish-gold and powder-blue toning is concentrated around the margins and is slightly more extensive on the reverse. The beauty of this coin is aptly affirmed by CAC. Population: 10 in 66 (1 in 66+) Cameo, 1 finer. CAC: 4 in 66, 1 finer (11/19).
    Ex: Central States Signature (Heritage, 4/2014), lot 4142.
    From The Tall Grass Prairie Collection. (Registry values: N1793) (NGC ID# 23BS, PCGS# 84756)

    Weight: 2.49 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
