The 1885 Dime is a relatively common coin that can be found with ease in most grades. Hundreds of Mint State examples are known, usually in MS64. The PCGS CoinFacts Condition Census consists entirely of MS67 examples, led by a PCGS MS67+ with spectacular toning. This date offers good value to both the date and the type collector. As with most Dimes of this era, the key is finding a fully-struck example with good eye appeal.
Seated Liberty Dime researcher, Gerry Fortin, has identified 11 different die pairs used to strike 1885 Dimes, one of which was also used to strike a small number of Proofs at the beginning of the year.
