    1872-CC Dime, VF25
    Rare Early Carson City Issue

    1872-CC 10C F-101, Low R.4, VF25 PCGS. CAC. Carson City dimes from 1875 to 1877 are fairly plentiful, but the initial issues from the legendary Old West facility are rare. When encountered, 1872-CC dimes are often granular or show other problems. But the present stone-gray and aquamarine representative has pleasing surfaces aside from a single thin mark west of the date. LIBERTY is sharp and the right-side corn grains are well defined. Population: 8 in 25, 44 finer (11/15).

    Coin Index Numbers: (Variety PCGS# 538286, Base PCGS# 4657)

    Weight: 2.49 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
