    1884 Dime, Frosted MS68
    Tied for Finest at PCGS
    Sole CAC Example

    1884 10C MS68 PCGS. CAC. This piece is tied for the finest 1884 dime at PCGS with one other deeply toned piece depicted on the PCGS CoinFacts website. The population stands at two in MS68 and none are finer (12/14), although this piece currently stands as the sole MS68 with the CAC green approval sticker. Unlike quarters and half dollars, which went to nominal mintages with the onset of the Morgan dollar and stayed that way through the vast majority of the 1880s, the dime saw a rebound in 1882, and multimillion-coin mintages were the norm at Philadelphia from then to the end of the Seated series. The coin is subtly frosted, largely untoned save for hints of gold more prominent on the obverse.(Registry values: N1)
