Lot Description
1897-O 10C MS66 PCGS. CAC. Only 666,000 Barber dimes were struck at the New Orleans Mint in 1897. The issue is elusive in all grades and in great demand from series enthusiasts. Examples in MS66 condition are very rare, as PCGS has graded only nine coins in this exalted grade, with four finer; while NGC has graded just four specimens at the Premium Gem level, with one finer (3/10). The striking details are sharp on this specimen, and the mostly brilliant centers are surrounded by lovely rings of iridescent green, gold, and blue toning.
