1907-S 10C AU58 Certification #11262566, PCGS #4845

Owner's Comments

The previous coin in this spot was a former Eliasberg coin, but did not match up well with the other coins in the set. A soft luster appears on both the observse and reverse with pastel toning of voilet and pink. Thank you to Mike Hayes for the trade. Total PCGS AU population is 71 with 24 in AU58. The BCCS rating is R-3.

The 1907-S Dime has the smallest mintage of any of the 1907 Dimes, The 1907-S tracks the 1907-D fairly closely in terms of populations and values, and both are considered scarce in Mint State.  Several dozen Mint State 1907-S Dimes exist, mostly in the grades of MS63 and MS64.  Gems are very rare, but there are actually more MS66's in existence than MS65's.  None have been seen above MS66.  

The strike quality on the 1907-S Dime is sometimes soft, particularly on Liberty's mouth and on some of the lower leaves on the wreath.  On the reverse, the lettering appears soft and rounded.
