1800 10C Dime Draped Bust, Large Eagle PCGS MS63 (CAC)


Outstanding quality for an 1800 dime with gorgeous gunmetal blue and champagne toning on both sides. Flashy luster is everywhere and comes alive when examined under a light. The strike is prodigious and full, with all the stars and curls bold on the obverse, along with the details of the eagle and stars on the reverse. No adjustment marks or hits to be found with a strong loupe and while there are few minor scuffs on the obverse, the reverse is super clean. The eye appeal is incredible for the type, which, save for a small number of superb examples is quite challenging to find in Mint State grades, especially CHOICE ones with CAC approval.

PCGS 1, NGC 1, CAC 2 (this number includes the MS63+). Before this coin sold in the 2020 FUN auction for $36,000.00, we sold this lovely example for $55,813 back in 2015. Today’s market is stronger than it was in early 2020 and the PCGS Price Guide value is listed at $45,000 and the CAC CPG value is $46,100. It should be noted that any GEM today is going to be a six-figure coin and the precious few that survive so fine are impounded in important collections. The rarity of many of these issues is simply not understood by most collectors, and high circulated grades are also quite challenging to acquire. An important opportunity! Don’t miss this handsome coin if you are serious about landing a high-end, high appeal early dime.
