    1852 Moffat Ten, VF30, K-8
    S.S. Central America

    1852 $10 Moffat & Co. Ten Dollar VF30 PCGS. Ex: S.S. Central America. Close Date. SSCA 7190. K-8, R.6. It is always important to remember the difference in detailing one must expect between the obverse and reverse of these pieces. Because of the curvature of the obverse die, that side usually has details that are as much as 20 points less than the reverse. It is a bit jarring to see, but that is how these coins were struck. The surfaces are bright yellow-gold. The obverse devices are outlined but only faintly detailed. The reverse, on the other hand, is missing a bit of high point definition but its definition is far superior to the obverse. The coin obviously circulated before it went down with the ship in 1857, but the signs of handling are minimal except for a thin vertical scratch in the left and right obverse field. Listed on page 365 of the 2010 Guide Book.
