Lot Description
1899-O 10C MS66 Prooflike NGC. The Complete Guide to Certified Barber Coinage ranks this issue as R.5 in Mint State, continuing the string of O-mint rarities. This incredible piece is uncommon in two ways: Not only is it justifiably ranked Prooflike, it shows an uncommonly bold strike for an O-mint Barber dime, many of which show weakness. The hair and headband are all complete, and there is just a touch of softness on the lower left leaf. This silver-white piece also shows little evidence of handling. The only Prooflike piece of the issue at NGC, in any grade (1/08) From The Southwest Collection.
