Owner's Comments

This coin has all the looks of a truly original album coin, including the hint of a thumb print from a former owner. Cobalt blue toning at the obverse rims and a much more colorful reverse. It also has a satiny appearance that makes it quite attractive. Total PGCS AU population is 229 with 128 in AU 58. The BCCS rating is R1.

Expert Comments

Ron Guth: The 1892 Dime is the first date of the new type designed by Charles Barber.  As a result, many were saved by collectors as a novelty, so high grade examples are fairly plentiful today.  Nearly 1,000 examples have been certified in Mint State. most appearing in the MS63 and MS64 grade levels.  Even Gems are plentiful up to the MS67 level, where less than a dozen have been certified by PCGS.  A look at the PCGS Condition census for this date shows examples with some spectacularly colorful toning.
