Description & Analysis

Proof sales fell to just 590 sets in 1890, as the coin hobby lost some of the momentum it had enjoyed during the 1870s-80s. No fewer than four die pairs were utilized for this modest mintage, and the reason for this is unknown.

Gems are relatively scarce for 1890 proof dimes. While Cameo coins are collectable, Ultra Cameo examples are quite rare. Typical of the period, the proof illustrated reveals some careless manufacture in the form of two obvious lint impressions in the obverse field.
