Is this a wide or a narrow rim variety ?
I would say wide but not sure at 100%.

Does anybody have any idea of the population of wide rim vs. narrow rim ?
NGC pop is 26 but I suppose there are some into the 634 coins from the the population of NGC's "CHINESE 1988 YEAR OF THE DRAGON 1 OUNCE SILVER 10 YUAN PF UC".

See this discussion which includes more links to other varieties of the 1988 dragon.  I can't distinguish wide vs narrow by photograph alone.
