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.
Just as nice as this scarce type coin can be for the grade and super appealing in every way. First, this piece exhibits a very strong strike with complete head detailing along with needle sharp detail in very aspect of the design, front and back. Surfaces are fresh and mark free and the color is light golden overall with pretty rose and blue along parts of the periphery. Strong, glowing luster finishes this GREAT coin. Easily in the top 5% of the grade and fully deserving of a "plus" designation IMO.
*NEW* Fully struck with impeccable, reflective surfaces and pretty, original silvery blue patina. Very choice for the grade in every respect and scarce. Coin Universe states, “Est. 50-70 known” in proof for this date.
