1858. PCGS graded Proof 65 Cameo PQ. CAC Approved. The year 1858 marked the first time the Mint began large scale distribution of proof coinage to fledging collectors of the time. This remarkable proof dime still survives from a small, but unknown mintage. Estimates of production vary between 100 coins (PCGS) and 300+ coins (Guidebook). A well-struck Gem, this piece exhibits appealing contrast between the fields and the devices. Areas of toning, primarily at the outer edges, include hues of orange and golden-brown. The fields are nicely reflective and there are no mentionable contact marks. Pop 1; 1 finer in 66. (PCGS # 84747) .
Estimated Value $6,000 - 6,500.

Realized $6,756
