    1893-S Barber Dime, MS66
    Sole Finest at NGC

    1893-S 10C MS66 NGC. CAC. The 1893-S is a better date in all grades and emerges as a great conditional rarity above the MS65 level. The obverse of this Premium Gem shows a mauve center framed by gold and mint-green iridescence. The reverse features lighter rose, aqua, and honey patina. A strong glass reveals only trivial contact on the portrait, while the fields are essentially immaculate.

    Population Data (7/14): This is the only MS66 at NGC with none finer. PCGS shows six MS66 and one MS67 finer.

    Heritage Commentary: Despite a rather large mintage of nearly 2.5 million pieces, this S-mint date is scarce in Mint State and compares favorably to the low-mintage 1896-S, 1897-O, 1902-S, 1903-S, and 1901-O issues.

    Provenance: Purchased from Premium Numismatics (8/2007).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 23DS, PCGS# 4802)

    Weight: 2.49 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper

    Thanks to Heritage I realized a handsome profit for my coin submissions and intend to send most of the remainder of my collection to Heritage Auction Galleries for future auctions.
