1906-O 10C MS67+ * NGC. CAC Eric P Newman Collection 

The radiantly lustrous surfaces of this high-end Superb Gem display a melange of greenish-gold, yellow-gold, violet, and golden-brown patination. The design features are much better struck than is typical for an O-mint Barber dime, including the olive leaves above Liberty’s motto and the right (facing) bow of the ribbon knot on the reverse, areas sometimes weak on this date. Both sides are immaculately preserved. This piece exudes outstanding eye apeal, accounting for the Plus, Star, and CAC trinity.
