    Solitary 1970 No S PR69 Deep Cameo Dime

    1970 10C No S PR69 Deep Cameo NGC. Walter Breen writes in his 1988 Encyclopedia that "(1970 No S) specimens were found in proof sets in the Mint Bureau's sealed plastic containers, Jan. 6, 1971; the Bureau on March 3 confirmed that a single die had produced 2,200 'S-less' coins." NGC and PCGS have, as of 6/07, certified 166 1970 No S proof dimes without a Cameo designation, and 74 pieces as Cameo. A mere two examples have rated NGC Ultra (Deep) Cameo, of which the coin in this lot is the finest! (PCGS, to date, has reported no Deep Cameos.) Outstanding contrast occurs on both sides of this PR69 Deep Cameo, since the frosted and well impressed motifs appear to glide over deeply mirrored, watery fields. We note a few freckles of light orange-gold color, especially on the obverse. Unimprovable surfaces exist on both sides.(Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 27F5, PCGS# 95248)

    Weight: 2.27 grams

    Metal: 75% Copper, 25% Nickel (Over Copper Center)
