Owner's Comments

This coin is tougher to locate than the guides suggest and was one of the last dates to be located. Light red, blue, and green toning radiating off the rims into the fields, with nice luster. Total PCGS AU population is 62 with 26 in AU 58. The BCCS rating is R1.

Expert Comments

Ron Guth

The 1901 Dime has a fairly hefty mintage of nearly 19 million coins, thus allowing collectors to easily locate examples in a wide range of grades.  In Mint State, this date is very common and even the PCGS CoinFacts Condition Census is filled with MS66 and better examples, some with truly remarkable color and eye appeal.

The strike qualities of the 1901 Dimes are generally very strong.  Luster ranges from brilliant to soft and creamy.  As one of the most affordable dates in the series, this is a great candidate for type sets.
