Out side of the killer 1834 PCGS MS67+ we bought from Pogue, we have not had any really nice Bust Dimes in ages. These are so hard to find REALLY nice! We do very much like and consider this piece a high end GEM.
One thing that highly impressed us, this coin is totally original. It is NOT a dipped out or messed with coin. The surfaces have plenty of “original” skin. There are no imperfections to be found. Both sides are an original creamy white with hints of gold by the rims, while the reverse has a full circle of gold. Miss Liberty and the details are lightly frosty and have crisp sharp strikes. The eye appeal is really nice!
PCGS 18, NGC 25, CAC 5. The last PCGS CAC coin to sell at auction brought $8,225.00 01/2014. The current Collectors Universe Value is $10,500.00. Do NOT let the pops fool you. This 185 year old Dime is hard to find in TRUE GEM. We think buying these BELOW $10,000.00 is cheap. The potential here is huge!
