    1896-S Barber Dime, MS66+
    None Known Finer

    1896-S 10C MS66+ PCGS. CAC. Dime coinage in San Francisco in 1896 barely topped 575,000 coins, and this issue is proportionately scarce in Mint State. The present high-end Premium Gem is tied for the finest known and is one of seven at this level with CAC endorsement. Ample luster rolls over frosty surfaces with just a tilt of the coin in-hand, and the design elements are fully rendered. Lovely lavender, rose, sky-blue, and sun-gold adorn each side, delivering exceptional visual appeal. Population: 13 in 66 (2 in 66+), 0 finer (11/15).(Registry values: N4719)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 23E2, PCGS# 4811)

    Weight: 2.49 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
