NGC slabbed it as MS(62), which seems awfully generous.

I'd be thankful for a 62 and leave it at that.

Here is a photo of your coin in 2005 with the same cert number. The coin sold at Heritage in 2005 and 2008. In 2008 it sold for $4600. Congratulation on your purchase of a beautiful example that was graded correctly. It appears that the coin was recently attributed O/O.

Thanks, Slider23, for showing us this past photo of the coin. It seems that it has been slabbed by NGC for a while, and I am guessing it may have been in an album for decades before that. I got it for significantly less than that 2008 price and I love the coin--it will represent its type very well in my US coin collection. I am trying to learn to navigate some of the "gray areas" between AU(58), MS(61), and MS(62) more effectively, and I am thankful to this forum for helping me learn through experience.

when you have a heavily toned coin it makes it even more challenging determining the difference between these grades. having the coin in hand helps a lot as one cannot rotate a photo in the light, which in a lot of cases, is needed to see minor wear from circulation especially if its a high end AU58. for the MS61/62 it typically comes down to the eye appeal and number of surface issues, scratches, abrasions, small dings etc. on your coin I did not see any circulation wear based on the photos. I felt it was not strong enough for a 63 grade and not enough issues to drop it to a 61. therefore MS62

Nice looking dime, I've always loved the Gobrecht no stars in the field look the best. I was a bit late to the game, but pegged it at MS61 before I scrolled down to post and saw the grade had been posted. I missed the O/O mintmark though.
