    1879 Dime, PR66 Ultra Cameo
    Rare at This Level

    1879 10C PR66 Ultra Cameo NGC. The 1879 had a slightly elevated proof mintage of 1,100 pieces, but circulation-strike production was down considerably to just 14,000 dimes. The scarcity of the latter, especially in high grades, means many collectors turn instead to proofs like the one here-offered. Contrast is dramatic, undiminished by the delicate layers of violet and rose patina that drape each side. Eye appeal and preservation are virtually unimprovable. Census: 1 in 66 Ultra Cameo, 1 finer (1/18).(Registry values: P1)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 23D4, PCGS# 94776)

    Weight: 2.49 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
