1896 Barber Dime. Proof-65 Cameo (PCGS). Boldly impressed, stark silver-white design motifs stand out against shimmering, mirrorlike fields on both sides, this only very lightly toned specimen is an exception in a collection that is composed of a disproportionate number of toned coins. Here is a coin that plays very well its role as an exemplar of the year's Barber Dime issue.
