Owner Comments:

F-102, proof dies according to Fortin, raising the possibility that this coin might be a proof. No doubt about the variety: the second 8 is repunched, and the 0 in the date while not quite broken shows weakness at 6 o'clock and 11 o'clock; and the letters (S)TATES are repunched. The reverse die is heavily rusted especially noticeable on the letters ONE DIME. But even with 100% confirmation, this coin just doesn't appear to be a proof to me (or NGC). The strike does not seem to be quite sharp enough, the letters not square enough, and the coin is lustrous and lacks mirror surfaces. One of four MS-68s at NGC with none so far at PCGS. Bought from Bill Nagle, August 2006.
