Delightful champagne-pink iridescence blends with intense satin luster on both sides of this attractive with Arrows dime. Overall it is fully struck and very close to an even higher grade. One of only two San Francisco Mint dimes of the brief Arrows, Legend Obverse design type, the 1874-S was produced to the extent of just 264,000 pieces. Despite the fact that the 1873-S has a higher mintage of 455,000 coins, both issues are of nearly comparable rarity in Mint State. Liberty Seated dime specialists and advanced type collectors would be wise to enter strong bids for this premium quality near-Gem.
