Choice Original, Rose/Gold Patina, Rare Grade Level, Massachusetts Collection.. Let's start this auction lot description with a grade rarity discussion as I have a deep respect for the 1847 Philadelphia date in AU or better. If one visits the PCGS Price Guide, the challenge in locating 1847 dimes in AU58 or better grades quickly becomes apparent. PCGS has certified (6) in AU58, (6) in MS62 and (4) in MS63 since start-up during 1986. These small numbers will include a few resubmissions, therefore the surviving population at these grade levels is closer to twelve pieces. GFRC is proud to be offering the Woodlands/Massachusetts AU58 example. Recently upgraded and now being offered via the January 2024 Island City auction event. Unquestionably choice with original blemish free surfaces and light rose and gold patina throughout obverse and reverse. Strike is well executed with rounded star points and complete hair curls along with fully impressed wreath leaves. Housed in a new PCGS Gen 6.1 (2020-2023) holder though the serial number dates back to the 1990-1998 old green label generation holders. PCGS #4589. December 1969
