Lot Description
1894-O 10C MS65 NGC. The 1894-O Barber dime is scarce and desirable in this lofty grade, one of the real series rarities. According to David and John Feigenbaum's Complete Guide to Certified Barber Coinage, "The 1894-O is one of the most difficult dates to find in mint state," assigning it an R.6 rarity rating. This coin is boldly struck throughout, lacking only the slightest details on LIBERTY and the lower part of the reverse wreath. The sparkling surfaces are virtually untoned, with good luster and ample eye appeal. The surfaces are a delight to behold, with nary a mentionable contact mark to be found, even with a strong glass. The paltry mintage of 720,000 pieces accounts for the rarity of this date in Gem. A foremost condition rarity that will please even the most demanding collector, and a prize to acquire. Census: 2 in 65, 1 finer (1/08). From The Southwest Collection.
