Choice $2100 Rare Date in Circulated Grades, Choice Original, Crusty Gray, Lakeland Collection. Let's start the description for this choice original 1864 Seated dime with a JUST BUY IT NOW recommendation. I can't tell you the number of times that Civil War Philadelphia strikes have cross my desk with problematic surfaces. This example has been stored in a sulphur laced paper envelope resulting in thick gray patina. A no question business strike with weakness at the upper left reverse wreath. Submitted to CAC without approval. I suspect that, if holdered as a VF30, this piece would have been approved. Frankly, surfaces trump grade on this important offering. Freshly graded and housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 holder. Price guides numbers continue to increase for all Civil War Philadelphia low mintage dates, especially in circulated grades due to rarity.
