Lot Description
1895 10C MS66 PCGS. Both sides of the this Premium Gem dime are thickly and evenly coated with a frosty overlay of grayish patina and just a slight tinge of charcoal and gold. The strike is uniformly bold throughout. The only distraction is a tiny, hair-thin luster graze appearing on the cheek when the coin is tilted at a certain angle. While picayune, this minor annoyance appears to have limited an even finer grade. A key date in the Barber series, from a mintage of only 690,000 circulation strikes. From The Joseph C. Thomas Collection.
