Ron Guth:

In 1858, production of Dimes at the New Orleans Mint dropped substantially from the previous year. In fact, the 1858-O Dime has the smallest mintage since 1845 and one of the smallest mintages of ANY O-Mint Dime. Nonetheless, the 1858-O Dime carries only a small price premium in Mint State, making it one of the best values in American numismatics. MS60 to MS64 examples are decidedly scarce, Gems are very rare, and only one or two examples are known above MS65. The best example is the PCGS MS66+ formerly of the Eugene Gardner Collection. This is no surprise, knowing of Mr. Gardner's penchant for quality.
