Rusty Goe Southgate Coin
This date is easily the rarest of all the With Arrows Dimes of the 1874-1875 period. The mintage was a mere 10,817 coins, of which very few were saved by collectors. Because most of the coins went into circulation, Mint State examples are exceedingly rare. What has been called the "Finest Known 1874-CC Dime" is the Buddy Ebsen - Eugene Gardner example that sold in 2014 for $152,750, slightly off from the record $162,150 price the same coin realized in 2003. The Norweb coin, last seen at auction in 1989, may be of comparable condition and it is partially prooflike.
