    Description

    1905-O Micro O Dime, MS65
    Only One Finer at PCGS

    1905-O 10C Micro O MS65 PCGS Secure. Ex: Simpson. A cursory examination of the PCGS population report suggests that the 1905 Micro O dime is only slightly scarcer than the Normal O variety (PCGS has certified 228 Normal O dimes and 212 Micro O examples). However, an examination of values helps to explain the difference. An XF40 Micro O valued at $700 in XF40 (according to the PCGS Price Guide) is more likely to be submitted than a Normal O in the same grade that is valued at $95. In Mint State grades, the Micro O emerges as a major rarity with only seven examples graded by PCGS finer than AU58. A Gem 1905 Micro O dime, such as the piece offered here, is a major rarity. This boldly defined piece has softly lustrous silver surfaces with delicate champagne toning. Trivial marks on Liberty's chin are all that separate this piece from the single finer example. Population: 1 in 65, 1 finer (11/15).
