1896-S 10C AU55 Certification #10945030, PCGS #4811

Owner's Comments

Yet another tough early date dime. With its low mintage the coin attracts a lot of collector attention. Splashes of toast and rust at the rims turning to soft blue in the center. This coin does not command the premium of the 96-O. Total PCGS AU population is 12 with 2 in AU 50 and 3 in AU 58. The BCCS rating is R5.
