NEWP MS66 CAC 1868 Dime
This is a hard coin to find. I got it from Northern Nevada coin. POP report says it is a pop 5/1 but I think it is harder. This coin is set to arrive on friday. I own 4 other MS examples just none this high. Not happy with the strike vs. some of my others but the fields are great in the pics. It appears to be a proof die obverse with an MS reverse. From what I read it was not uncommon to use proof dies for circ strike coins in the era. Maybe some of the seated dime folks can opine on the story. It probably was dipped at one point, at least by someone who knew what they were doing since it still got CAC.
