    1866-S Dime, Rare MS62
    Cracked Obverse Die State

    1866-S 10C MS62 PCGS. F-103, High R.4. The 1866-S Seated Liberty dime is rarely seen in Mint State, coming from a mintage of 135,000 coins that circulated extensively on the West Coast. This variety shows, in the current die state, a long, jagged die crack from the 8 in the date to the M in AMERICA, and a loupe reveals a short, horizontal die line connecting the lower end of the LIBERTY scroll to the nearby drapery fold. Strike softness is noted on Liberty's head and the corresponding wreath bow, but the remainder of the design is well-struck. Satiny luster and light golden toning complete the eye appeal, while abrasions are minimal.(Registry values: N1793)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 239T, PCGS# 4644)

    Weight: 2.49 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
