Ron Guth: The 1896 Dime is a very common coin that can be found in high grade with little difficulty.  The PCGS CoinFacts Condition Census (Top Ten Finest) includes coins in MS66 at the low-end going all the way up to a single MS67 at the top end.  This date comes well-struck and fully lustrous.  A few prooflike example are known, and the premiums on such coins are so low that they are a "must-buy."  The most valuable versions of this date are those with great toning and eye appeal.
