Finally got to a spot I've wanted to hit for a year. It did not disappoint. IMG_20210916_133911_076.jpg IMG_20210916_133911_108.jpg IMG_20210916_133911_114.jpg IMG_20210916_133911_123.jpg

Not an easy date to find! If it didn't have the corrosion, it would be a pretty valuable coin. :icon_thumright:

The S-mint Seated dimes from this era sometimes have very weak mintmarks. In this case, it would be better if it had no mintmark, since the 1865 Philadelphia dime is a rare one. Honestly, 1865-S isn't that common either!

A most excellent coin. There is nothing better than good ole US silver! Looks like it may have suffered some fire damage.
