This desirable example of the scarcer of the two subtypes (Above Bow the other) from the Carson City Mint’s production of dimes in 1875 displays much luster. The obverse is mostly white, with just the slightest trace of a beige haze gently laid across its surface. Some granularity in the right field gives evidence of the use of a rusted die. A die crack runs from the D in UNITED through almost all of the letters in STATES. Details are razor sharp, and only a minimal number of contact marks are visible, most notably on Ms. Liberty’s cheek, and in the right field to the left of AMERICA.

The reverse has a heavier layer of the beige haze seen on the obverse, although the central areas are very light in appearance. Some darker, jelly-bean purple-colored patina is visible on sections around the periphery, and some gray-colored streaks crisscross the fields around the words ONE and DIME. Fewer contact marks are visible, but more granularity, from the use of a rusted die, covers the surfaces.

For the grade, this is a standout piece, which offers much to explore in the way of diagnostics.
