a rare 1849 proof dime

Colorful 1849 Liberty Seated Dime Featured in the June Showcase Auction

The present 1849 Liberty Seated dime is among the most desirable coins of our upcoming sale. This date was struck at the Mint before Proof production began on a wide scale. The Mint produced only a few Proof sets for official purposes or for distribution to the small number of numismatists who were active during the decade. Given the scarcity of the Proof sets, we believe that no more than 10 Proof Liberty Seated dimes were struck in 1849. This example is graded by PCGS as Proof-66, CAC, OGH.
