Die caps are among my favorite errors. I just ran across this amazing coin which stopped me in my tracks!

Post any deep die caps you like in this thread!

1892-O Barber Dime - Deep Die Cap Error - PCGS AU55 - Ex. Mike Byers

This 1892 "Deep Dish" Die Cap Barber Dime is super deep and has a nice strike of the obverse. Is this the deepest Barber Dime die cap out there?

I like the angled side photos for die caps to show the depth. Would TrueView ever consider some additional angled side shots for coins like this?

Is there any additional known provenance for this coin? It's a pretty impressive coin so I'm hoping some history is known!

It's also pretty impressive that this is in such an old holder.

Update: added Byers provenance.
