Perhaps 20-25 proof 1857 dimes survive today from an estimated original mintage of 70 examples. The present example is not only tied for finest know status with one other coin at PCGS; but is by far the most attractive. The strike is razor sharp and the surfaces exude a semi-prooflike quality. As icing on the cake; both sides possess a dramatic rainbow of color. Everything a collector could desire contained in a tiny numismatic treasure. PCGS population 2; with nothing finer.
