Important Numismatic Rarity in Gem Proof - Fewer than 10 Known Imagine the ability to acquire a rare numismatic treasure with fewer than 10 examples known under $20,000. This gorgeous white gem proof also represents the only certified coin in Cameo. According to David Akers in his cataloging of the famous Pittman collection, "With the exception of the 1841, the 1845 [dime] is at least as rare as any other Proof Dime of the 1840's; only 5 or 6 Proofs exist. Star, Lovejoy, and Eliasberg had Proofs of this date; Norweb, Garrett and James Stack did not. The National Numismatic collection in the Smithsonian Institution also has an example. That accounts for just five pieces, but it is always possible that one or two others may exist." This coin is formerly of the Richmond Collection where it brought $19,550 (DLRC Auctions, March 2005).
