Lot Description
1906-S 10C MS67 PCGS. CAC. Even though the 1906-S Barber dime is a fairly available issue, it is quite rare -- as is any S-mint Barber dime -- at the Superb Gem grade level of the present piece. Strike can be a problem although it is not on the present piece, which is well-struck throughout save for minor weakness at the lower reverse, on the top of the bow at the right. Strong mint luster lies under the patina, which has gold and pale green intermingled with the predominant pinkish-gray. The eye appeal is excellent, and this contact-free piece is tied with two other MS67 pieces as the finest at PCGS (6/11).
