Seated 10C 1876S Seated 10C 1876-S
Type 1 Reverse
Choice $300 Type 1 Reverse, Brilliant Luster/Cartwheels, Hammered Strike, Choice Original Surfaces, Gerry Fortin Reference Collection. One of the better 1876-S Seated dime in my reference collection; perfectly balanced between strike, luster and surfaces. There was disappointment when receiving this dime back from PCGS in an MS62 holder since listing it for years as an MS63 in the web-book. As background, the Type 1 Reverse F-118 die pairing will be found well struck but with a reverse die that is cracked and missing lower wreath and ribbon ends details. Die polishing is the likely suspect. This offering is the Reverse F-118 plate coin at The Definitive Resource for Liberty Seated Dime Variety Collectors. Brilliant luster and swirling cartwheels are consistent on both sides. Strike is hammered with deeply impressed devices especially on the obverse; every hair curl and gown fold is in high relief. Surfaces are choice and unabraded. Purchased raw at the 2002 August ANA World's Fair of Money. Freshly graded and housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 holder.
