||DIMES - SEATED LIBERTY, STARS OBVERSE
||10C 1859 O
||NGC MS 67
F-103, medium O. A somewhat difficult date to find in gem given its R-1 status and mintage of 480,000. So far just five MS-67s have been graded (three at NGC and two at PCGS) to go with one MS-68 at NGC. The strike is quite good, especially considering the obverse die looks well worn. The obverse does offer some lively golden toning to go with a fiery luster. Bought from Jason Carter, November 2005.
