    1897-O Barber Dime, MS67
    A Condition Census Rarity

    1897-O 10C MS67 PCGS. The 1897-O Barber dime is collectible in most Mint State grades, but go out and try to acquire a Superb Gem example and collectors may have to wait years just for a bidding opportunity. This piece, housed in an old green label holder, is responsible for two of the seven previous offerings of an MS67 coin in our auctions. The other five offerings constituted only three additional coins. These four pieces represent the only Superb Gems we have confirmed to exist, although PCGS and NGC combined report eight submissions in this grade.

    The obverse of this Superb Gem is brilliant save for a few small blobs of russet toning in the right field -- the remnant of an ancient partial print. The center of the reverse is mostly white with peripheral steel blue and golden-brown toning. Both sides have immaculate surfaces and frosty mint luster. Population: 5 in 67 (1 in 67+), 0 finer (11/17).
    Ex: Long Beach Signature (Heritage, 2/2007), lot 2941; Central States Signature (Heritage, 5/2007), lot 2075.(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 23E4, PCGS# 4813)

    Weight: 2.49 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
