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.
Sharply struck with vivid cream-white luster.
Attractive white mirror surfaces. The obverse portrait of Liberty has an attractive light cameo.
Brilliant frosty luster with peripheral champagne accent.
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.
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!
CAC. Strong detail and nice surfaces.
One of the 'keys' to the series with a mintage of just 690,000. This example has a satiny white core with a thin arc of rainbow peripheral toning at 12 o'clock on the obverse and 6 o'clock on the reverse.
A beautiful flashy proof with heavy white frost on the design and very deep mirrored fields. Nearly flawless with a very faint champagne hue that adds to the coins exceptional eye appeal.
Just 440,000 minted which is the second lowest in the series behind the million dollar plus 1894-S. This example has sharp detail and lustrous surfaces behind light olive-gold toning.
Attractive warm steel-gray surfaces. Low mintage of only 440,000 and tough in any grade.
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!
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.
