    1872-CC Dime, XF45
    Important Condition Rarity

    1872-CC 10C XF45 PCGS. CAC. a single die variety is known for all survivors from the mintage of 35,480 dimes at Carson City in 1872. Gerry Fortin notes at Seateddimevarieties.com that "the 1872-CC dime becomes extremely rare" in grades of XF or better. A faint die crack appears through the mintmark on this example, as on most 1872-CC dimes, and it is always present on 1873-CC and 1874-CC dimes that were all struck from the same reverse die. This wonderful pewter-gray example has delicate peripheral gold toning on both sides with faint, inconsequential hairlines. Population: 14 in 45, 3 finer (3/15).(Registry values: N2998)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 23A8, PCGS# 4657)

    Weight: 2.49 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
