Lot Description
1895-O 10C MS65 PCGS. The legendary 1894-S will always be the key date of the Barber dime series, but like the 1913 Liberty nickel, most collectors regard it as a proof delicacy struck for insiders, rather than a regular issue necessary for completion of a set. Discounting the 1894-S, the unchallenged key to the collectible series is the 1895-O, which not coincidentally, is also the only issue with a mintage below 500,000 pieces. The present sharply struck Gem possesses unencumbered luster and faint olive-gold color. No contact marks are readily evident, and the eye appeal is most impressive for this famous branch mint rarity. Population: 10 in 65, 2 finer (6/10).
