    1891-O Seated Dime, MS66 ★
    Full Prooflike Fields

    1891-O 10C MS66 ★ NGC. Fortin-Unlisted. The date is far left, with the first 1 centered over a denticle and directly under the point of the shield; the mintmark is very similar in appearance to that of Fortin's reverse K, but is positioned minutely further left, centered over a denticle. The fields on this piece are fully prooflike, although some minor striking weakness on Liberty's head and the high points of the wreath preclude the possibility that this coin was struck more than once. No cracks are in evidence, although the obverse shows faint clash marks in the field near Liberty's left (facing) arm and there is heavy die polishing evident in the recesses of Liberty's gown and in the rock base above the date. Both sides show pale champagne toning, with hints of deeper amber around the peripheries. An exceptional coin, ideal for a high-end collection. Census: 13 in 66 (1 in 66 ), 2 finer (3/15).(Registry values: N1) (NGC ID# 23BE, PCGS# 4707)

    Weight: 2.49 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
