1914-S 10C AU58 Certification #11349109, PCGS #4867

Owner's Comments

This is challenging coin to locate and should not be passed up if you locate a nice specimen. There is a lot of luster on both sides. The obverse has a hint of green peaking out from underneath all of that luster, while the reverse is the color of toast. Total PCGS AU population is 39 with 22 in AU 58. The BCCS rating is R3.

The 1914-S Dime has a nice, mid-range mintage for the series -- not too large and not too small.  This date commands a premium in most grades, often double the type value.  Mint State examples are fairly plentiful and are usually MS63 or MS64.  Gem examples are scarce, but available for a price.  Only in MS67 does this date become a condition-rarity and the finest example of which we are aware is the lone PCGS MS67 formerly in the Simpson Collection.
