The 1901-S Dime is one of the more exciting dates in the series because it has the smallest mintage of any Dime between 1896 and 1913. As such, it is in high demand in vortually every grade. However, the premium for this date begins to fade in Mint State because there are quite a few examples to satisfy collector demand. In fact, there are other dates that are less "famous", which have smaller MS populations, and lower prices. What all this means is that a Mint State 1901-S Dime offers excellent value and still comes with a great, small-mintage story.
This date comes very well-struck. Luster ranges from brilliant to frosty and this date often comes with nice eye appeal. The best example seen to date is a PCGS MS67+ (formerly of the Lily Nicole Collection).
