    1896-S Dime, MS66
    None Numerically Finer

    1896-S 10C MS66 PCGS. A frosty, glowing Premium Gem, this 1896-S dime also boasts sharp design definition and shows warm cream-gold toning with small areas of deeper amber and russet color. A single tick above Liberty's eye is the only discernable surface flaw. The 1896-S is slightly underappreciated in comparison to its New Orleans counterpart, as both issues have comparable mintages of 575,056 and 610,000 pieces, respectively, but the 1896-O is the more highly acclaimed issue. Population: 11 in 66 (3 in 66+), 0 finer (7/16).(Registry values: N4719)

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

    Weight: 2.49 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
