1871-CC 10C Fine 15 PCGS....
Key Date 1871-CC Dime, Fine 151871-CC 10C Fine 15 PCGS. A very scarce date and a key to the series. This issue is often found with damaged or porous surfaces, largely caused by the Carson City mint "shortcutting" the annealing process. Instead of using silver mixed with 10 percent copper, they used pure Comstock silver causing the design to wear more quickly and coins often to become environmentally damaged; although the current coin does not exhibit such damage. This specimen is moderately but evenly worn, with a couple of minor marks near the center of the reverse. Light champagne-gray toning is accompanied by speckled greenish patina near the borders. Population: 1 in 15, 15 finer (6/08). (Registry values: N1793) (NGC ID# 23A5, PCGS# 4654)
