    1905-O Dime, Lightly Patinated MS66
    Bold Definition for the Issue

    1905-O 10C MS66 NGC. Delicate bands of russet, magenta, and ice-blue toning surround brilliant interiors on each side with coruscating luster throughout. Like the other 1905-O offered in this sale, the devices display better strike detail than is usually encountered on examples from this O-mint issue. The date is a trifle soft, and a few light marks are of little importance.

    Population Data (9/15): NGC reports seven in MS66 and four MS67 finer. PCGS shows 19 Premium Gems with six finer.

    Heritage Commentary: This coin is quite similar in appearance to the MS67 NGC example that recently sold as part of the second installment of Eugene Gardner's historic collection (Heritage, 10/2014). An absolutely beautiful New Orleans representative that is conditionally rare in this impressive state of preservation.

    Provenance: Purchased from Simco Numismatics (1/1999).(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 23EU, PCGS# 4836)

    Weight: 2.49 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
