    Key 1895-O Barber Dime, MS64

    1895-O 10C MS64 NGC. Why do collectors always fill those key-date holes last? This is a fleeting opportunity to either fill that last hole in your Barber dime set, or to start a new collection with the key date first. (That is, unless you want to start with the nearly unobtainable 1894-S.) The present example boasts superior surfaces and a robust strike that come extremely close to full Gem status. The pristine surfaces are a light silver-gray complemented by a tinge of amber on the obverse periphery. The Gem designation is perhaps prevented by a small, light scratch, visible only under a glass, that runs down the side of Liberty's nose. A tiny dot depression in the cheek is a planchet flaw. The strike is well brought up overall, save for softness on the lower wreath details. Despite these minutiae, this is an appealing example of a coin that comes infrequently to auction in such a high grade: our records of major numismatic auctions show only 10 offerings of the 1895-O in MS64 in the past 13 years. Delay no longer! Census: 9 in 64, 6 finer (6/10).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# C4KL, PCGS# 4807)

    Weight: 2.49 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
