Description

Important Gem 1866-S Dime, Fortin-101
Rare in Mint State

1866-S 10C MS65 NGC. Fortin-101, R.4. The obverse die is noteworthy for a slender vertical die crack across the portrait. The reverse mintmark is lightly but evenly impressed. The 1866-S has a mintage of 135,000 pieces, and although scarce, it is collectible in circulated grades. It is a rare issue in Uncirculated condition, since numismatists were largely confined to the East Coast in 1866. NGC has certified just 10 examples in all Mint State grades. The present lustrous Gem displays light apricot toning largely confined to the reverse border and lower obverse. The surfaces appear pristine, and the strike is good, with minor incompleteness noted on portions of UNITED STATES and on a few cereal grains in the upper left of the wreath. Census: 4 in 65, 1 finer (6/10).
Ex: Chicago Rarities Sale (Bowers and Merena, 4/2008), lot 247, which realized $29,900.(Registry values: N1) (NGC ID# 239T, PCGS# 4644)
