Ron Guth:

The 1873-CC With Arrows Dime is one of the most popular dates in the series, but it sits in the shadows of its big "brother" the Unique 1873-CC No Arrows Dime. Nevertheless, there are plenty of collectors who delight in the coins of the Carson City Mint, and this is a favorite because of its small mintage and great rarity in high grades.

Those collectors looking for certified examples face stiff competition. PCGS shows 80 grading events as of this writing (July 2014), and the true number is doubtless lower because of resubmissions. PCGS has graded only one Mint State example -- an MS65 from the Norweb Collection that sold for $276,000 in 2012. More recently, the Eugene Gardner example in NGC MS65 sold for $199,750 in 2014. These are significant increases over their face value of 10 Cents!

The best that collectors can hope for with this date is a nice, clean, original and unimpaired example. Good luck with that.
