1861 10C F-110a, R.4, MS63 NGC. This dime is in the earliest stages of the deteriorated die state variety, Fortin-110a; faint die cracks are visible in the left wreath branch but they are not as advanced as on most F-110a representatives. The date position aids in attribution. This piece is boldly struck and satiny with dappled lavender, olive, and gold toning. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
