Barber Dimes were issued from 1892 to 1916. Charles Barber was the designer and Barber Dimes were struck in Philadelphia, Denver, New Orleans, and San Francisco.
There are many scarce dates in this series with the 1894-S Barber Dime being one of the most famous rarities in all of American numismatics. Only 24 coins were struck and examples of this rare Barber Dime have fetched over one million dollars at auction!
A frosted proof with needle-sharp detail and flashy brilliant luster over highly reflective surfaces.
Well struck with a frosty white core and sage-green and gold over-tones. A scarce first year issue with 990,000 minted compared to over 12 million 'P' and just under 4 million 'O' mint coins
A blast white Superb Gem with thick frost on the design features and essentially flawless mirrored fields.
Flashy white luster with beautiful contrast between the frosted design elements and the very deep mirrored fields.
CAC. Extremely well struck with crisp white luster. The design shows modest frost and there is a touch of semi proof-like reflectivity to the fields.
A solid strike with creamy white luster and minimal abrasions. A better date in mint state.
CAC. Exquisite peripheral turquoise, russet and gold with a frosted champagne core. The strike is very bold and the superb deep mirrored surfaces are virtually flawless.
CAC. Beautiful blast white surfaces with a nice frosty look and more cartwheel than generally seen on a proof. The surfaces are essentially mark-free and the eye appeal is outstanding!
CAC. Beautiful frosted design features set against flashy deep mirrored fields. Super quality!
A pleasing example of this 'key' date.
Brilliant white luster with frosted design features and remarkable deep mirrored fields. The only 66 graded coin from NGC with just a single coin grading finer at 67, but not PL.
CAC. An even 2 million minted with relatively few mint state survivors. This is a sharply struck coin with champagne-cream luster.
CAC. A stunning blast white proof with fantastic contrast between the deep mirrored fields and the heavily frosted devices. Super eye appeal!
Nice champagne-white luster and a sharp strike.
CAC. A flashy, mostly white, twentieth century proof with snow white frost on the design.
Crisp white luster with deep reflective fields and heavily frosted design features.
Rich original lustrous surfaces with variegated toning of lavender, gold, green and dove-gray. Far better struck than this issue usually comes with roller marks from the planchet preparation hidden under the patina but still present on the obverse. Only 6 have graded numerically finer at PCGS.
CAC. Although not designated as a Cameo; there is wonderful contrast between the snow white frosted design and the deep brilliant mirrored fields. A gorgeous proof that is clearly premium quality for the grade.
A visually stunning coin with blazing luster off proof-like surfaces and a lovely light lavender hue. The design features are frosted and produce a nice cameo effect. The star designation is a further indication of how much NGC liked this piece. 2.65 million minted yet surprisingly scarce in mint state. This is the only MS-67 graded at NGC with none finer.
CAC. Nice dove-gray, olive-green and gold patina over deep mirror surfaces.
