Ron Guth:

The 1886 Dime is another common date in the later part of the Seated Liberty series. It is common in all grades, including Mint State. Several hundred Mint State examples are known, so the bioggest dilemma for collectors is deciding which one to choose. Even Superb (MS67) examples can be found with relative ease.

Dime researcher Gerry Fortin has identified nineteen different die pairs for this date and we suspect that more will be discovered because of the large mintage.
