Choice Original, Hammer Strike, Accurately Graded. I've looked at 1856 Small Date dimes for years trying to locate a full struck and toned MS65 or MS66 example for personal set. In the end, I gave up and have several fully struck MS64 examples. Why am I explaining this personal history? To make the point that fully struck 1856 small date dime are actually uncommon even at the AU53 grade level. I was excited to locate this lovely example with hammered strike and soft antique gray patina. There are no blemishes whatsoever also. A wonderful example for date/mintmark set collector seeking eye appeal and strick originality. Housed in 2015 generation PCGS holder. December 1969
