    1897 Dime, PR67+ Deep Cameo
    Few Finer Survivors in the Entire Series

    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 finer (7/20).
