PCGS#: 4814

Owner's Comments

This would be one of those mystery coins. The obverse has a cloudy gun metal blue toning, while the reverse is stunning, with gold turning to orange to rust at the rims. The 97-S is more limited in terms of of supply, but the 97-O has much more demand. Another R4 coin, and one of the best kept secrets in the Barber dime series. Total PCGS AU population is 20 with 6 in AU 55 and only 4 higher in AU 58.
