1865-S Liberty Seated Dime, PCGS VF-20

658.00

Greer-102, Fortin-102. A very scarce late Civil War date from San Francisco, with a low mintage and lower survivorship, perhaps as few as 250 by one estimate (R-3 as a date in Brian Greer's text on the series, R-4+ in Fortin for the variety). As noted in Greer, almost always poorly struck, and with a weak Mintmark. This last is due to the fact that perhaps half or more of survivors are the Greer-101 variety. The present coin is the rare variety which pairs the "sloping date" Obverse with a Strong S Reverse. PCGS does note distinguish by Greer #, so estimating a proper premium is difficult. The few listings I could trace indicates that grade, originality and whether a coin will certify have a greater influence on price, but I think a modest premium is still in order, given that this is one of the relatively few PCGS coins in the grade, let alone of the variety.
