Likely the cleanest business strike dime in my collection.
Total population of just 3 coins at this level at NGC with none finer.
Overall great luster and strike and probably techincally the cleanest dime in my collection, outside the SMS coins from 2005-2010. In reality, I think this dime gives most of them a run for their money for grade. Take back the small mark below the US to the right of the torch and this one could of been the first MS 69 coin graded for the 1970s.
Taken from an original US mint set - this was not a fresh set, or unsearched set, or sealed mint shipping box, just a normal everyday Joe purchased form eBay.
Scores 1,028 points, while not a FT, it is still a welcome addition to my set.
Thanks for looking!
