1859-O 10C MS 67
|Type:||Type 3, Stars Obverse|
|Category:||Liberty Seated Dime (1837-1891)|
Finest known condition rarity! The 1859 New Orleans dime is a true rarity in Gem condition. Remember, this was just before the Civil War. New Orleans was a wide open city and very few coins were saved. This amazing Gem is one of only four specimens graded MS67 by PCGS in the last 34 years, and none have ever been graded higher. It is the finest 1859-O dime we have ever seen or handled. The surfaces are clean and virtually perfect. The strike is razor sharp and 100% full. The luster is fresh and original under beautiful blue-green rainbow toning. The eye appeal is off the charts!
