Ron Guth:

The 1862-S Dime has a small mintage, a diminutive population in all grades, and a miniscule population in Mint State. Collectors in 1862 were perfectly satisfied to own a Dime from Philadelphia, and paid little attention to branch mint issues, thus most of the entire mintage of 1862-S Dimes was dumped into circulation and stayed there. Today, any Mint State 1862-S Dime is a rarity. The highlight for this date is a single PCGS MS-65 which, coincidentally, holds the record price an 1862-S Dime.
