First Year U.S. Dime Closes Today
October 02, 2007

Draped Bust Dime at Heritage

Here's a coin with good appreciation potential, a lovely toned 1796 U.S. Dime graded MS-66 by NGC. Check out the track record on this grade, type and date through Heritage auctions from 1994 to early 2007.

The mintages of all early date Draped Bust Dimes are very low and demand is always good for quality examples. This is the right combination to keep prices on a continual upward trend.

Bidding for this coin closes at 10pm central time tomorrow, October 2nd. There is a sellers reserve of $62,500, which equates roughly to the retail price of an MS-65 coin.
