    1882 F-101 Dime, PR69
    Tied for Highest Graded for Type

    1882 10C F-101, R.3, PR69 PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. A remarkable proof type coin. Rich powder-blue and lilac-red toning alternates across undisturbed surfaces. The strike is bold save for slight softness on the hair of Liberty's head. Die polishing has left Liberty with partial drapery below her raised elbow. The 2 in the date is entered low and repunched, as seen on all 1882 proofs. Perusal of the PCGS Population for the proof Seated Liberty dime shows only two pieces certified as PR69 for the entire series, both dated 1882. The significant of the present opportunity for the silver type collector cannot be overstated. Population: 2 in 69, 0 finer (10/20).

    Coin Index Numbers: (Variety PCGS# 539052, Base PCGS# 4779)

    Weight: 2.49 grams
