DESCRIPTION
Condition Census 1873 Doubled Die Obverse 10C
The Only Mint State Example at PCGS

1873 Liberty Seated Dime. Arrows. Fortin-103, FS-101. Rarity-6. Doubled Die Obverse. MS-61 (PCGS).
We are thrilled to offer this incredible Condition Census example with overall pearl-gray surfaces, strong luster, and hints of champagne-gold toning. The 1873 Fortin-103, FS-101 Doubled Die Obverse dime is perhaps one of the most exciting varieties among all U.S. coinage. The obverse shield and banner is significantly doubled and obvious to the naked eye, accompanied by a misplaced 3 in the dentils below the date. At MS-61, this piece is the the only Mint State example graded by PCGS and ranks superior to even the Simpson-Gardner specimen graded AU-58 (PCGS) and the Fortin plate coin at AU-55 (PCGS).
Discovered by Liberty Seated dime specialist Kamal Ahwash prior to 1981, the 1873 Arrows Doubled Die Obverse remains very rare with only about a dozen examples confirmed. Most of these are well worn in grades of VF and lower, often with surface impairments. Writing for the website seateddimevarieties.com, Gerry Fortin remarks, "Locating a choice and original Variety 103 example will take patience and considerable effort." The importance of this attractive, Mint State offering for variety specialists cannot be overstated.

PCGS# 145495.

PCGS Population: 1; none finer. A single MS-61 is also listed at NGC.
