    Low Mintage 1896-O Barber Dime in MS66

    1896-O 10C MS66 PCGS. The 1896-O was produced to the extent of just 610,000 pieces, and virtually all entered circulation and remained there until worn out or lost. Like many other O-mint Barber Dimes from the 1890s, this issue is scarce in Mint State, and rare as a Gem. This Condition Census representative is lustrous with modest brightness in the fields and a dusting of soft golden iridescence. The virtually pristine features are sharply impressed with no bothersome abrasions to report. NGC and PCGS combined report just six coins in MS66, with a lone MS67 NGC specimen finer (1/02). (NGC ID# 23DZ, PCGS# 4810)

    Weight: 2.49 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
