1897 Dime, PR67+ Deep Cameo
1897 10C PR67+ Deep Cameo PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. The height
of proof production quality took place during the final years of
the 19th century. It would be just about impossible to locate a
better example of the 1897, of which 731 pieces were struck, or of
any proof Barber dime, for that matter. In the entire series, PCGS
has graded just six submissions at the PR67+ Deep Cameo level, and
only five are better in PR68 Deep Cameo, one of which is an 1897.
Rings of blue, crimson, and golden-orange frame the obverse, while
the reverse remains totally brilliant. Contrast is profound, and
the technical quality and eye appeal are practically unsurpassed.
Population: 2 in 67 (1 in 67+) Deep Cameo, 1 finer. CAC: 1 in 67, 1
Few Finer Survivors in the Entire Series
Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 23GA, PCGS# 94881)
Weight: 2.49 grams
Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
