    1897 Barber Dime, MS67 ★
    Marvelous Patina and Preservation

    1897 10C MS67 ★ NGC. CAC. A spectacular Superb Gem example that ranks near the apex of the surviving population technically and aesthetically, as recognized by both NGC and CAC. The surfaces showcase frosty mint luster, and most design features are boldly defined. The central areas exhibit intermingled golden-brown and lilac toning, while electric-blue colors the margins.

    Population Data (3/15): This is one of seven Superb Gems at NGC and the only submission to receive a Star designation. PCGS reports five examples in MS67 (one MS67+). Neither service reports a numerically finer representative.

    Heritage Commentary: P-mint Barber dime production surged from 2 million coins in 1896 to more than 10 million coins in 1897. A majority of the certified population survives in MS61 to MS65, whereas comparably graded Superb Gems constitute just a small fraction of encapsulated coins.

    Provenance: San Francisco ANA Signature (Heritage, 7/2005), lot 5886.(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 23E3, PCGS# 4812)

    Weight: 2.49 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
