1857. PCGS graded Proof 66 Cameo. CAC Approved. This glittering example is the result of an unknown, although obviously limited mintage -- PCGS estimates just 70 examples coined. It was not until the following year,1858, that the Philadelphia Mint increased yearly proof production with the intent of marketing such pieces to the contemporary collecting public. The proof 1857 Liberty Seated dime was prepared almost exclusively for presentation or other official purposes, and also for distribution to a handful of collectors with close ties to Mint personnel. The current PCGS Population Report accounts for approximately 30-50 examples of this issue in numismatic hands. Ranking among the finest certified, this snow-white Gem is free of both toning and detracting blemishes. Sharply struck from the dies, and also possessed of marked field to device contrast that readily upholds the validity of the Cameo designation from PCGS. Truly outstanding. Pop 2; none finer at PCGS. (PCGS # 84746) .
Estimated Value $15,000 - 16,000.
