    Pristine 1893/2 Barber Dime, MS66

    1893/2 10C MS66 PCGS. This overdate is identified by a horizontal line inside the bottom loop of the 3, representing the base of a former 2. It was discovered by Walter Breen in 1961, and apparently is known both in business strike and proof format. Breen further commented that at least four different variations of this overdate were known to him. For many years after its discovery, people doubted the existence of such a variety. However, 16 years ago a group of six sharply struck, high-quality examples were discovered, eliminating any question. The present example is tied for the finest certified by PCGS, and has wonderful frosty white luster on both sides. The surfaces are essentially pristine and perfect, with the exception of a few wispy hairlines on Liberty's cheek. The PCGS population of this overdate in MS66 has remained unchanged since we offered this specimen three years ago. Population: 5 in 66, 0 finer (2/09).
