I love this type and look at every available coin at every show, buying maybe 2 or three a year. As usual, I reject the great majority, but this one was a winner. Very sharply struck on both sides, a trait that separates it from most. Basically free of marks and mostly brilliant with light silvery patina overall with some deep blue peripheral toning front and back. Finished with full, original mint luster.
*NEW* Absolute top of the grade, this little type coin will easily compare favorably to most I see in MS65 holders. Full, sharp strike on impeccable surfaces with deep, original violet-blue toning over strong luster.
*NEW* A gorgeous little jewel. Absolute needle sharp strike front and back with light violet rose patina going to deeper blue at the peripheries on both sides, and finished with full glowing luster. Awesome eye-appeal.
Gorgeous original Superb Gem. Needle sharp strike on both sides and graced with a beautiful blend of rose and blue toning going to rosy gold at the peripheries. Reverse is a lovely blend of blue and rose. Flawless surfaces and full blazing luster. Among the nicest of this type I have seen.
*NEW* A little Gem showing a needle sharp strike front and back and finished with beautiful aqua-blue and rose toning on both sides. Fully lustrous with superb Eye-appeal. Great type coin for the toning enthusiast
A wonderful original showing nice even wear and light to medium antique gray patina. Finding a well struck example of this type in any grade is tough. In this grade, the present piece is truly scarce with complete stars, lettering, date and eagle designs intact. Distraction free surfaces finish this little jewel.
I love all Draped Bust coinage and view every dime of the type at every opportunity. This denomination is plagued by the same problems as all Draped Bust coinage, mostly weak and uneven strikes and often planchet irregularities. Finding a wholesome, original piece without a problem is unusual, in all grades, including higher MS specimens. This coin shows a full and even impression of the dies on both sides. Full rim, complete hair and drapery, sharp lettering and date. The reverse is equally well struck with complete lettering, eagle feathers and shield details. Complete “E Pluribus Unum”. Additionally, this piece is completely original with lovely light to medium even silvery gray antique patina with decent underlying luster. No adjustment marks, abrasions, contact marks or other distractions. Recently graded and housed in a fresh “Edgeview” holder.

Starting with a perfectly strong strike front and back, this gorgeous GEM shows bright rose centers and deep blue peripheral toning, basically matching on both sides.
