Description 1849 10C MS65 NGC. Fortin-104, R.4. In the past this variety has been called an 1849/8, but it now appears that the final digit is punched over a previously punched 9. This is the most significant variety of the seven die pairings known from this year. All variants of the 1849 dime are challenging in mint condition, and very elusive in Gem and finer. In fact, NGC and PCGS have graded only eight MS65s and four coins higher. This may well be the finest example known of this variety. Violet, lavender, and greenish-yellow toning adheres to the lustrous surfaces of this Gem. The design elements are better-defined than ordinarily seen, especially on Liberty's head and the reverse bow knot and leaves, areas normally weak. Census: 7 in 65, 3 finer (10/13). Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $2,585.00 . Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions,
