Lot Description
1919-S 10C MS65 Full Bands PCGS. The 1919-S issue was little appreciated at the time of release, and its mintage of over 8.8 million pieces experienced extensive circulation. In addition, the San Francisco Mint practiced extreme economy in producing dimes that year; as a result, most high-end survivors exhibit significant die erosion and striking weakness. This delightful Gem, however, offers substantially above-average definition, including fully split, if not fully rounded bands on the fasces. Strongly lustrous, slightly satiny surfaces show ample silver-blue toning with elements of tan and russet at the reverse margins. The overall preservation and eye appeal are equally remarkable. Population: 20 in 65 Full Bands, 3 finer (4/08). From the Tremont Collection.
