1906-S 10C AU55 Certification #16634868, PCGS #4841

Owner's Comments

The Cameo like appearance of "Liberty" makes this another must have coin for this set. The obverse has shades of blue and rose while the reverse has splashes of yellow and green. Total PCGS AU population is 34 with 4 in AU 55 and 25 in AU 58. The BCCS rating is R4.

The 1906-S Dime is semi-scarce and carries the biggest premium of any 1906-dated Dime.  Nonetheless, collectors should have no problem finding a Mint State example since many dozens have been certified by PCGS in MS63 and better grades.  Numerous Gem and Superb examples exist.  The best ones top out at MS67.  Virtually all of the highest-grade examples are toned to some degree, often in colors ranging from subtle to dazzling.  Because the strike on the 1906-S Dime is usually strong, the biggest dilemma facing collectors is finding the most visually appealing example for the grade.
