    Beautiful Cameo Superb Gem, 1897 Barber Dime

    1897 10C PR68 ★ Cameo NGC. An early proof delivery in this turn-of-the-century Dime series, the otherwise easily obtainable 1897 is not well represented in today's market at the PR68 level of preservation. In addition to smooth, pristine surfaces, this virtually untoned example is possessed of bold cameo contrast that only enhances the eye appeal. There are no ill-defined features, and no mentionable disruptions to the silky-smooth sheen of this marvelous Superb Gem. Population: 2 in 68 ★ , none finer (8/04).(#84881) (Registry values: N4719)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 23GA, PCGS# 84881)

    Weight: 2.49 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
