Lot Description
1895-O 10C MS65 PCGS. The key to the series and the lowest mintage issue of the design type (except, of course, for the famed 1894-S rarity), the 1895-O is always in demand by Barber dime collectors, and it is an easy coin to sell (at a premium) in grades of XF and better. From a mintage of just 440,000 pieces, it is scarce in all grades and rare in and above AU. The untoned surfaces of this high-end Gem are smooth and satiny throughout. Every last design feature bears testimony to the care with which this coin was produced, a highly desirable quality for often-weak O-mint issues. For future pedigree purposes, a couple of marks are seen on the obverse: one under Liberty's chin, the other on her lower jaw. This is a fleeting opportunity for the advanced specialist; obtaining a high grade 1895-O represents a zenith achievement for the Barber dime set collector. Population: 9 in 65, 1 finer (2/09). From The Joseph C. Thomas Collection.
