Description & Analysis

Two obverses and two reverses were paired in unique combinations to create the 711 proof dimes of 1889. Neither variety is of particular interest to collectors, who seek this issue by date or type alone.

As with the proofs of 1887-88, gems are elusive, and this reflects the Mint's carelessness in making proof coins around this time. Cameo examples are rather scarce, while Ultra Cameo proofs are great rarities.
