    Impressive 1896-S Barber Dime, MS66 PCGS

    1896-S 10C MS66 PCGS. This issue and the 1896-O are virtually identical in mintage and overall rarity. The mintage totaled 575,056 coins, or about 35,000 less than the '96-O. Both have identical populations in this Premium Gem grade level. This example, the finest of its kind, is two full grade points better than the Hugon coin. The strike is exquisite with full obverse and reverse details. The surfaces are mostly brilliant, although partially masked by pale gold color. Although a few of the faintest hairlines are visible, the surfaces are essentially pristine. Like the 1895-S dime, the mintmark is clearly shelf doubled. Although equality may have finally been reached, until recently, this 1896-S issue, with a lower mintage and similar population, would often sell for half or less the price of a similar 1896-O Dime. Such a situation suggests to us the underrated nature of this issue. Population: 5 in 66, 0 finer (11/05).
