10C 1798 PCGS MS64 CAC LARGE 8 EX POGUE/PRICE
R-4. SUPER HIGH END QUALITY.
One of the prettiest dimes in the collection, toned in soft pale blue, muted champagne, and richer gold. The aesthetic appeal is beyond compare, with lustrous cartwheels on both sides to match. The fields are free of noteworthy marks, and the devices show just a dull old abrasion below Liberty’s ear and a shallow patch of hairlines at the upper right corner of the shield on reverse.
This coin is technically finer than the grade designated, and has a look that surpasses most gems in the series. The obverse shows a rather involved series of die cracks, including a broad arc that begins at the rim above the left side of Y, touches the tip of Liberty’s nose, and rejoins the rim beyond stars 11 and 12. Another points from Liberty’s chin into the field, near the visible remnant of a clashing, and still another connects the stars at left. The wing on the left side of the eagle is broken at its tip and joined to the rim. An exquisite dime for sure!
PCGS Population: 4, 3 finer (MS-66 finest).
