Lot Description
1905 10C MS67 S NGC. A fantastic coin that revels in intense gold and green peripheral hues, with snow-white luster in the fields. Of course the surfaces are outstanding, with only the faintest signs of contact seen. Fully struck on the wreath, but a touch weak on the uppermost leaves in Liberty's crown. This is a strong contender for the finest known of the date. NGC and PCGS have graded four pieces this high, and none finer. This coin is an absolute keeper for the specialist, as few coins of any grade can compare with the vibrant colors seen here. It is the only 1905 circulation strike dime that has been given the NGC Star designation in any grade (3/09). From The Joseph C. Thomas Collection.
