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!
Roll of 50 AG or better.
Lustrous surfaces and a sharp strike with beautiful original toning. Champagne-gold, cherry-red, turquoise, and lime-green offer a wonderful collage of color!
Sharply struck and devoid of significant marks. The luster is nearly crisp white with just a faint golden hue. A scarce overdate that we rarely get the privilege to handle.
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!
Well detailed with nice steel-gray surfaces.

A well detailed example of this better date.
Boldly struck with pleasing surfaces that show no significant marks. The luster is rich and creamy with very light iridescent toning. A nice example of this key date!
