1899 9/9 dime A.U.

Post by Hobub » Tue Aug 25, 2020 10:12 am

Hello forum. I just picked up an 1899 dime in what I would call AU as it has all the details if BU yet some obvious wear on her cheek. The date is 1899 and as I was researching I found your site. It lists the large and small nines and after close examination, it is the smaller 9’s. However the second 9 has a bit of a protruding defender beneath the bottom left side of the curve. Nice luster on this coin. And all the details in the Queen’s hair. And 3-4 distinct segments in the leaf/wave in front of her ear.

I cannot find much on the doubled 9 other than this site. Can you help me determine if that is what I have here and proper value assessment?

Thank you,
Hobub

I'm pretty sure your coin is considered jewelry now with the ring attached.

Hi and thanks for your reply. It is not permanently mounted on the clasp. The top holds it in place there with a small screw. No damage on the rim or anywhere on the coin.

No damage to the coin would probably be ok it looked like it was attached to the rim by a weld

Here is what I found on the clasp. This is the item.

Still curious on thoughts of condition and value on the dime. And any more info on the doubling of the second 9. I have placed it in a nickel size 2x2 in the clasp but could easily remove it if it is best for the coin.

I'm not real good at these years for grades but I think it might make VF-30-EF-40 for condition with DP large 9.

Thank you. DP (double punch), I would say at least XF. With all the luster still present maybe AU. I don’t know much about Canadian coins and never saw one this old with so much detail before finding this one. But according to chart here XF Large 9’s books about $238. Probably will need to send to NGC to be certain
