Description & Analysis

With just 10,000 Philadelphia Mint dimes produced for circulation in 1865, most collectors will have to rely on a proof specimen to represent this issue. Some 500 proofs were coined, and most of these survive in various states of preservation. Those that are too impaired to receive a numeric grade are not included in the census data below.

Two die pairs were employed, one obverse having a level date and the other having its date sloping slightly upward from left to right (photo).

Cameo proofs are rare---Ultra Cameo pieces all but unknown.
