    Description

    1896-S Barber Dime, MS66
    Unavailable in a Higher Grade

    1896-S 10C MS66 PCGS. Many of the branch mint dimes from the 1890s are low-mintage issues and they are usually quite scarce in high grades. The 1896-S is a classic condition rarity of the series, with coins grading MS65 or finer extremely scarce. The issue is unobtainable any finer than MS66. This mark-free Premium Gem example displays strong satiny luster and delightful lilac-gray patina. The strike is sharp as a tack. Population: 17 in 66 (2 in 66+), 0 finer (1/16).(Registry values: N4719)

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

    Weight: 2.49 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
