Hello all!
I may have had to wake up at an ungodly hour of the night, but I'm now the proud owner (well, when it arrives! ) of an 1879 dime!
Any thoughts on circulated proof vs. Circulation strike and the potential grade? Seller pics from the lot, sorry for the quality!

I'll say EF-45, but larger pics would help.

I'd also say XF-45. The numbers look a bit too rounded for an impaired proof, but you got a fantastic deal for that lot, congrats!

the photos could be a little sharper but the strike on this coin and overall detail imo this coin is AU50. you stole this one.

At least XF-45, business strike. Great steal at that price!

Minimum EF45 possibly an AU coin. As said we need better photos, closer, brighter and cropped tighter.

Wow! Nice auction win.
I agree with everyone else grades of XF-45 from these photos.

I'd say it creeps into AU50

I'll jump on the bandwagon and go 45-50. I'm jealous. Great pick!

I would say XF-40-45. Perhaps 45, but photos are not very good and hopefully for the OP no scratches or other problems (like plugged holes).

In terms of grade I agree with everyone else. Though as far as proof vs business strike I'd need better pics to try to get a definitive die match. There were a total of 8 dies used to produce both proof and business strike 1879 Dimes. Of those 4 dies were used to strike proof coins
