Lot Description
1895-O 10C AU58 PCGS. The recognized and well-respected key to the series--excluding the 1894-S--the 1895-O Barber dime is rare in any circulated grade and even more so in Mint State. This nice coin spans the bridge, lightly circulated and yet oh, so close to Uncirculated. The light wear is most easily visible on the hair below LIBERTY and the large leaf at the lower left of the wreath on the reverse. Most of the luster remains, and amber-russet peripheral toning completes the attractive package. PCGS has certified only 28 pieces of this issue in Mint State (1/07), a figure that is likely inflated as much as 100% by duplications, and this lovely piece is one of 10 AU58 examples. From The Edward Sacks Collection.
