1881 10C MS 65+
|Type:||Type 5, Legend Obverse|
|Category:||Liberty Seated Dime (1837-1891)|
The 1879 to 1881 dimes were very low mintage issues. The original mintage for the 1881 was a mere 24,000 coins (for reference, the mintage for the 1882 increased to 3.9 million coins). So the 1881 is a rare coin in even the very lowest grades. In 34 years, PCGS has only graded 10 examples MS65 with just two specimens grading MS65+. This is a frosty Gem with deep blue golden peripheral toning.
