    Unimprovable 1912-S Dime, MS67 Prooflike
    The Only Certified Prooflike Example

    1912-S 10C MS67 Prooflike NGC. Although numerous 1912-S Barber dimes exist in the lower Mint State echelons--that is, lower than the present piece--in MS67 this is the single finest so certified at NGC, with another MS67 piece at PCGS tied for the numeric honors. It is also the only Mint State 1912-S in any grade certified as Prooflike at NGC (or at PCGS, which does not certify Prooflike Barber dimes).
    This silver-white Superb Gem lacks any discernible coloration, save for a few dark microflecks that appear under a loupe, but the devices are thickly frosted--the reverse more so than the obverse--and the fields are brilliantly mirrored, as expected. Both sides are remarkably distraction-free. Another unimprovable coin, both technically and aesthetically!
    From The Southwest Collection.(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 23FP, PCGS# 4862)

    Weight: 2.49 grams

    The outcome of the auction far exceeded my best hopes and would not likely have been as successful with out your sound advice on where to present the coin and how best to set the reserve. Throughout the process your availability , support and knowledge were exceptional.
