1896 Capped Bust Dime heralded a major technological advancement at the Mint. Starting with this coin, the Mint began to use a closed collar to mint coins. This was a cylindrical metal piece with a hole in it that held the blank planchet. For this Type, the cylinder was reeded. When the dies came together to stamp the coin, the collar prevented the metal from flowing out between the dies, and formed the reeds on the edge of the coin. This sped up production and further contributed to the uniformity of coins.
