Lot Description
1895-O 10C AU55 NGC. Discounting the essentially non-collectible 1894-S, the unchallenged key to the Barber Dime series is the 1895-O. It is the only issue with a production below 500,000 pieces, and most survivors are in worn out AG to VG grades. This impressive example is only faintly toned in chestnut hues, and the occasional trivial contact mark is less than expected for the grade. Luster flows throughout the legends and wreaths, and is broken only on Liberty's cheek and neck and across the open fields.
