Lot Description
1899-O 10C MS66 PCGS. Ex: Duckor/Hugon. This specimen is boldly struck and frosty white, with fully lustrous surfaces. Both sides are brilliant, with no toning save for a hint of champagne on the reverse. The design features on each side are sharply defined, especially the lower reverse wreath details that are almost invariably weak. A virtually undetectable and insignificant arcing break in the luster is noted on Liberty's cheek and neck, and it is this characteristic that positively identifies this coin as the Hugon specimen. This date is quite scarce, especially in Premium Gem quality, and the present opportunity should be considered carefully. Population: 7 in 66, 1 finer (4/09). From The Mark Miller Registry Set of Barber Dimes.
