Description & Analysis

The final issue of the Seated Liberty Dime saw sales of just 600 silver proof sets, and this date is somewhat scarcer than proofs of the 1880s. Its quality, however, is superior overall to that of the several dates immediately preceding. Cameo proofs are collectable, but Ultra Cameo examples remain quite rare.

Three die pairs were used for this modest mintage, which suggests that the proofs were coined in several batches.
