Description & Analysis

This high mintage issue is common across all grades through MS 65. It is a popular candidate for type sets, though collectors should avoid pieces like that illustrated. While pleasingly lustrous and attractive toned, it is particularly weak at Liberty's head and the bow knot directly opposite it.

1890(P) dimes are rich in misplaced date varieties, a couple of them being fairly popular.
