Lot Description
1875-S 10C Mintmark Above Bow MS66 PCGS Secure. CAC. Light to medium chestnut-gold toning visits this lustrous and well preserved Seated dime. The Mintmark in Wreath variety is surprisingly elusive in Mint State, and the present piece ranks among the finest known. The die pairing is unlisted in Fortin, and combines his obverse 2 with his reverse A. The reverse die state is between A and A.2 and displays prominent clashmarks on the field. The obverse has slender peripheral die cracks. Population: 2 in 66, 0 finer (8/10). From The Bob Simpson Collection of Seated Dimes.
