    1896 Dime, Attractively Toned MS66
    A Better Date in the Series

    1896 10C MS66 PCGS. CAC. Attractive speckled multicolored patina adorns the peripheries, while the central areas display soft pinkish-gray toning. This piece is boldly struck and impeccably preserved, with typical, pleasing satiny luster, making it well-deserving of the CAC sticker.

    Population Data (9/15): PCGS reports 21 in MS66 (eight MS66+) and one MS67 finer. The finest at NGC are 10 in MS66. This piece is among five in this grade with the CAC green approval.

    Heritage Commentary: The 1896 dime, with a production of 2 million pieces, is a better date in all levels of preservation and is among the more underrated P-mint Barber dimes in the better Mint State grades.

    Provenance: Purchased from David Lawrence Rare Coins (11/2005).(Registry values: N2998)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 23DY, PCGS# 4809)
