Lot Description
1897-O 10C MS66 PCGS. The 1897-O is another elusive early O-mint Barber dime. This is a well struck Premium Gem of this scarce date that shows beautiful iridescent blue, green, and golden-brown peripheral toning on both sides. The surfaces are quite attractive, with no distractions aside from faint lines on Liberty's cheek and neck. The centers are bright and frosty. The strike is sharp on the reverse wreath, except for the finest details on the lowest inside left leaf. NGC and PCGS have seen just 10 pieces at this grade level, with a mere five specimens graded finer (4/09). From The Mark Miller Registry Set of Barber Dimes.
