Description & Analysis

Opposed arrowheads flanked the date on dimes coined after passage of the sweeping Mint Act of 1873, and this feature lasted through 1874's production. The arrowheads denoted an extremely slight increase in weight so that the dime would have a more or less even Metric weight of 2.50 grams. The USA's flirtation with this system of measurement was relatively brief, and this gesture was utterly meaningless with respect to commerce. The weight change was so slight that dimes of the previous standard still fell within the legal tolerance for the new standard!

A total of 800 proof dimes with arrows was coined from a single pair of dies, and all of these feature the Open 3 date style. Overall quality was in decline during this period, with the result that Cameo proofs are quite rare, while Ultra Cameo examples are essentially unknown.

NGC Price and Value Guides Disclaimer

Disclaimer: The prices listed in the various NGC Price and Value Guides are compiled from a number of independent, third party sources in the numismatic community which NGC believes to be reliable. Prices provided are averages, not specific prices for individual coins. Further, because these prices are only updated from time to time, they do not reflect short term pricing trends, which are quite common and are often quite dramatic, given the volatile nature of the collectible coin marketplace. This is especially true for rare coins, where there are fewer sales and greater variations in sale prices. For all of these reasons, the prices in these guides are designed to serve merely as one of many measures and factors that coin buyers and sellers can use in determining coin values. These prices are not intended, and should not be relied upon, to replace the due diligence and — when appropriate — expert consultation that coin buyers and sellers should undertake when entering into a coin transaction. As such, NGC disclaims all warranties, express or implied, with respect to the information contained in the NGC Guides. By using the NGC Guides, the user agrees that neither NGC nor any of its affiliates, shareholders, officers, employees or agents shall have any liability for any loss or damage of any kind, including without limitation any loss arising from reliance on the information contained in the Guides.
