The lustrous surfaces of this near-Gem display splashes of forest-green and lavender, more extensive and deeper on the obverse. This sharply struck piece has been well cared for. Population: 18 in 64, 11 finer (11/11).
CAC.The austere elegance of Christian Gobrecht's No Stars dime design--Liberty seated against a plain background on the obverse with date below, the reverse with UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around a simple wreath with ONE / DIME inside--makes it one of the simplest but also one of the most classically beautiful 19th century coinage designs. This lustrous, softly frosted Gem offers great eye appeal thanks to broad strokes of blue, violet, green, gold, and orange patina that leave only a few windows of original silver. Population: 25 in 65, 7 finer (11/10)
