My 1887 S Liberty Seated Dime suddenly got better.

8 posts in this topic

My dime I previewed in the "Hey, Buddy can you spare a grade" section this week suddenly improved. While seeing which Ahwash attribution to use to list it in my Pro Coin software I discovered that this is a Medium S over small s coin that is listed as a rarity of 7. I have never had a coin in this rarity range before. Too cool.

Here's a pic of the mintmark. The first two pics are of my coin and the third is Gerry Fortins that he provides on his website. According to Kamal M. Ahwash only 10 to 12 exist(maybe 13 now). This has not been officially attributed yet so nothing is for certain. My fingers are crossed.

Thanks for reading.

Oh well, Gerry Fortin just contacted me on his forum and i have an 1887 S Medium S over Medium S, no great prize I guess. My bad. See what getting excited gets you? lol


Thanks gang,



Edited to add: Gerry explained that Kamal M Ahwash was evidently wrong in his

explanation of a Medium S over small s as none exists. Still this is not a readily available coin, so time will tell--Jim
