1859 10c PCGS MS68

DLRC #: 1834192 // PCGS #: 4619

A beautifully toned example of this fantastic type coin. With basically no distracting marks and light reddish-rose outer tints, the centers display a pleasant blue. This coin is as nice of a dime as we've ever handled and its story of survival would certainly be an interesting one. Only 6 coins are graded as such for the entire type with none having ever sold in auction, this seems like a fantastic value for the long-term collector.
