Expert Comments

Ron Guth: The 1886 Dime is one of the more plentiful Proofs of the Seated Liberty series, though it is not the most common (that title goes to the Proofs of 1879 and 1880).  The vast majority of the certified Proof 1886 Dimes are brilliant; approximately 20% are Cameos; and only a very few examples are Deep Cameos.  This date comes well struck and many of the top examples have tremendous eye appeal.  PR64 is the typical grade, and the finest Proofs certified by PCGS include a handful of PR67s.
