    Select Mint State 1895-O Dime
    Low-Mintage Condition Rarity

    1895-O 10C MS63 PCGS. Collectors looking for a high-quality 1895-O dime are fighting two headwinds. First, the date is inherently low-mintage, with just 440,000 pieces struck (fewer than the more famous 1909-S VDB cent, by comparison). Second, there was little reason to save the date at the time of release, and so Select and better pieces are condition rarities. Yet because it is not the premier key date of the series -- an honor that goes to the enigmatic 1894-S dime -- it remains more accessible than it would be otherwise. This faintly abraded yet fundamentally pleasing MS63 piece has gold-gray and silver base toning with powder-blue and azure hues at the margins, more prominently on the reverse. Population: 8 in 63, 17 finer (7/11).(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# C4KL, PCGS# 4807)

    Weight: 2.49 grams
