Description:
Key 1871-CC Dime With XF Details
1871-CC 10C XF Details, Improperly Cleaned, NCS. First year of production for dimes at the Carson City mint, and a low mintage issue as well with only 20,100 pieces struck. This is an evenly worn example that is untoned over most of each side with deeper brown accents around the margins. The surfaces display numerous small abrasions and are slightly porous. Greer explains this as a shortcut the Carson City mint took. Rather than striking dimes from the standard 90% silver, 10% copper alloy, they struck them from pure Comstock silver.
From The Empire State Collection.(#4654) (Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 23A5, PCGS# 4654)
