Ron Guth: The 1867 Dime is a rare date with a small mintage of only 6,000 pieces.  However, a sufficient number of Mint State examples were set aside to satisfy most collector demand at the top end.  A few dozen Mint State examples are known, most of which grade MS64.  A few, colorful, top-grade examples exist, including a pair of PCGS MS67s.  This date comes with a good to a strong strike.  Luster ranges from hard and chrome-like to frosty, with some examples showing a hybrid finish with die polishing lines interrupting a lustrous field.

Jerry Fortin has identified two die combinations for the circulation strikes, neither of which share an obverse or a reverse.  His first variety (Fortin 101) is much rarer than his Fortin-102, and suggest a 50% premium for the former.  For Proofs, Fortin identified a single die pair.
