    Superlatively Toned MS67 1893-S Dime, Finest Graded

    1893-S 10C MS67 PCGS. The 1892-S and 1893-S are perennial favorites on the want lists of Barber dime collectors--while the 1894-S is, of course, another matter entirely. This incredibly lovely Superb Gem example of the 1893-S stands alone at the top of both the PCGS and NGC population reports (3/07), the only MS67 certified at either service. This specimen tops the 1893-S dime in our January 2005 Signature Auction of the phenomenal John C. Hugon Collection of Barber coinage (Auction 360, lot 4006) by a full three grade points! The obverse offers a delectable melange of pastel pink-gray with tinges of ice-blue at the rims, while the reverse offers a more verdant palette of forest-green, gold, and aqua. Both sides are expectedly free of mentionable distractions, and the bold strike completes the superlative package. Population: 1 in 67, 0 finer (2/07).
    From The Palakika Collection.(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 23DS, PCGS# 4802)
