    1908-O Barber Dime, MS65
    Conditionally Rare

    1908-O 10C MS65 PCGS. CAC. This Gem is sharply detailed for a New Orleans product with a hint of high-point incompleteness, as usual. Dappled russet and violet patina covers the obverse. The reverse maintains substantial brilliance with splashes of olive-russet toning. A few tiny ticks appear on Liberty's portrait and above (ON)E.

    Population Data (9/15): PCGS and NGC, respectively, report 26 and nine submissions in MS65 with 16 finer at each service. Four in MS65 have the green CAC approval.

    Heritage Commentary: The 1908-O is a collectible O-mint issue through MS64, though it is scarcer than the two New Orleans dates that come before it. Attractive, well-struck examples such as this are rare in Gem condition or better.

    Provenance: 60th Anniversary Sale (Stack's, 10/1995), lot 374.(Registry values: N1793) (NGC ID# 5KXH, PCGS# 4848)

    Weight: 2.49 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
