Description & Analysis

Although numerous 1912-S Barber dimes exist in the lower Mint State echelons--that is, lower than the present piece--in MS67 this is the single finest so certified at NGC, with another MS67 piece at PCGS tied for the numeric honors. It is also the only Mint State 1912-S in any grade certified as Prooflike at NGC (or at PCGS, which does not certify Prooflike Barber dimes). This silver-white Superb Gem lacks any discernible coloration, save for a few dark microflecks that appear under a loupe, but the devices are thickly frosted--the reverse more so than the obverse--and the fields are brilliantly mirrored, as expected. Both sides are remarkably distraction-free. Another unimprovable coin, both technically and aesthetically! From The Southwest Collection.
