    Finest Known 1901-S Dime, MS68 NGC

    1901-S 10C MS68 NGC. With the fourth lowest mintage in the Barber Dime series, the 1901-S has long been recognized as a key date, and the 1901-S has great notoriety in the entire Barber series. Only 593,022 pieces were struck, this date boasts the fourth lowest mintage in the series, behind only the 1895-O, 1896-S, 1913-S, and the famed 1894-S. It is relatively scarce in all grades with Mint State examples rated as a high R.4. Currently (11/04), there are 65 examples certified in all grades of Uncirculated, this being the single finest known to either service.
    Each side displays bright, satiny luster that is enhanced with champagne and golden-rose peripheral shadings, undoubtedly a result from long time storage in a cardboard album. The strike is beyond reproach with sharp definition on every detail, Liberty's hair and cheek, the leaves on the wreath, even the individual kernels of corn. There are two die cracks on the obverse, one across the lower part of Liberty's bust to the rim at 5 o'clock, the other diagonally from the D of UNITED across the cap to the E of STATES. These are mentioned as future identifiers as there are no mentionable marks or spots that might otherwise fulfill this task. A unique opportunity for the Barber specialist.(#4826) (Registry values: N10218) (NGC ID# 23EH, PCGS# 4826)
