    1874-CC Arrows Dime, Fair 2
    Low Mintage, Low Survival Rate

    1874-CC 10C Arrows, F-101, R.4, Fair 2 PCGS. If the unique 1873-CC No Arrows is excluded, the 1874-CC has the lowest mintage of any Carson City dime issue. Just 10,817 pieces were struck, and since there were no coin collectors in the Old West, few if any were set aside for many years. Most collections of Seated dimes lack an example. The present piece has a clear date and mintmark. UNITED STATES OF AMERICA is faint, but most letters are evident. Silver-gray centers are bounded by deep autumn-brown, plum-red, and sea-green toning. There are no relevant abrasions. A collectible example of a coveted Carson City key.
    From The Ed Leigh McMillan Collection.
