    Condition Census 1895 Dime, Superb Proof 68 NGC, Ex: Childs

    1895 10C PR68 NGC. Only 880 proofs were struck of the 1895 Dime. This, coupled with the low business strike output of only 690,000 pieces, makes the 1895 Dime a valued coin in both proof and business strike format. This is an exceptionally attractive and vibrant example that would be almost impossible to equal in eye appeal. The obverse displays a breathtaking array of electric-blue and crimson toning in a rather mottled fashion, and the reverse is essentially untoned with only a slightly milky hue as the coin is turned under a light. As expected of the PR68 grade, there are no visible marks or other detractions. A truly outstanding, high grade 1895 Superb Proof Dime. Population: 7 in 68, 0 finer (11/04).
    Believed to have been purchased from the Mint by Walter H. Childs; Childs Collection (Bowers and Merena, 8/99), lot 214.(#4879) (Registry values: N4719)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 23G8, PCGS# 4879)
