Barber dimes

Coins-United States | user_22476

Barber dimes are very rare and are all silver. They were only made as dimes, quarters, and half dollars. They minted from 4 mints, New Orleans, Denver, San Fransico, and Phildeaplgh. The 1894 dime is the most expensive at around 2 million dollars. Proof versions from the San Fransico mint are very expensive at around $500 on average. The coin in the picture is a 1902 O version which had 4,500,000 minted.

The design seems very plain to me. Not a fan. But they are history.

Ummm, Barber dimes are not all silver. They are 90% silver and 10% copper.....

An outstanding design to collect in either denomination. Very few other designs hold up as well, grades ranging from fine to extra fine side by side rarely look out of place. In fact, I'm a long time member of the Barber Coin Collector's Society I love them so much.

Very well done. The proofs from San Francisco t 1892 they believe there are 24 left! Protect your coins. And they will last longer. Keep it up. You will learn lots here. Welcome!!
