Satiny Gem Mint State 1879 Dime. 1879 Seated Liberty 10¢. MS-67 NGC. The present beauty is fully lustrous and just as brilliant, with a mostly PL contrast between the motifs and the satiny fields; the reverse is full-blown PL to our eyes, and the obverse is not far off the mark. From a modest mintage for the date of 14,000 pieces; the previous year’s mintage from Philadelphia was greater than 6.7 million coins! Surprisingly, there is a small number of NGC grading events that surpass this majestic specimen in grade even though the present Gem does not leave much room for improvement. The number of events at the MS-67 level suggests some resubmissions to NGC may have occurred for this date. Resubmissions or not, our suggestion would still be the same to you for this lot: don’t let this one slip away!
NGC Census: 44; 6 finer (all MS-68). Seven of the 44 are designated PL, and 2 of the 6 are also designated PL.
