1796 10c NGC MS63

DLRC #: 220783 // PCGS #: 4461

Here is a wonderful, fresh choice uncirculated example of this exciting Draped Bust dime. Richly toned with very sharp details and plenty of remaining mint luster. The year 1796 is exciting for dimes as is represents the first year the United State Mint produced this denomination and the more affordable of this 2-year type (Draped Bust obverse with the small eagle reverse). We seldom offer high grade specimens of this type and the next owner is sure to covet this historic piece.
