The 1909 Dime has a fairly hefty mintage of over 10 million coins. Thus, it is easy and inexpensive to obtain in most grades. Mint State examples are very plentiful, with hundreds of examples available in a range of grades from MS62 to MS65. The PCGS CoinFacts Conditin Census starts with MS66 examples and tops out at MS67. The three MS67's illustrated above present in different ways; each has color in varying formats. The price record for this date is held by a PCGS MS66 (interestingly, two of the PCGS MS67's sold subsequently for a price no more than a third of the record).
