    1888-S Dime, Sharply Struck MS67
    Important Condition Rarity
    The Finest Certified

    1888-S 10C F-106, R.3, MS67 PCGS. The Fortin-106 variety is attributed by a High Date that has a slight downward slope, and a centered Medium S mintmark with a slight left tilt. Both sides are peripherally toned in dappled orange-russet and cobalt-blue colors, and each side is richly frosted. The central motifs display frosty silver luster beneath ivory-gold toning.

    Overall, the design elements exhibit an above-average strike. Liberty's head is sharply defined for the issue, a significant attribute, as the 1888-S normally is found weakly struck there. There are no grade-limiting abrasions -- all factors that confirm the Superb Gem grade, making this the finest-certified example at either service. Population: 1 in 67, 0 finer (1/16).
