  • Description:

    Considered to have a pretty high mintage, of over 19 million, the 1906 Certified Barber Dime MS64 NGC is an attention-getter with its high grade of MS64. For highly circulated coins, like the Barber dimes, finding any grade above MS60 can be a rarity. NGC is the trusted grading agency, in the US, and is admired for their quality packaging and competitive grading standards. The 1906 Certified Barber Dime MS64 NGC comes encased in a NGC certified holder. The 1906 Certified Barber Dime MS64 NGC was minted by the Philadelphia Mint. The Philadelphia Mint was the first mint to be established in the US so it doesn't mark its coins with a mint-mark. The US desperately needed an identity but also a means to international commerce so the Founding Fathers decided that a national mint was the answer. The Mint Act officially announced the opening of the Philadelphia Mint and also instituted guidelines for the newly minted currency. A dollar decimal system would be used to assign the currency with legal tender values. Also, an emblematic symbol of liberty must be included on US currency, hence why so many adaptations of Liberty have been used.

    A familiar name to coin collectors, William Barber served as the Chief Engraver, to the US Mint, from 1869-1879. In just the short ten years as Chief Engraver, Barber was responsible for a history-breaking coin design. Being one of the only designs to grace all current denominations, the Barber design was inspired by the Grecian goddess, Liberty, who has been admired and loved by warriors since the beginning of time. Liberty wears an Acanthus leaf cap as a crown, which was very common in ancient Greece, and the "United States of America," and the coin's mint date are also simply stamped on the obverse. The usual reverse contains the nation's official seal, which is of a heraldic eagle holding a shield. Each of the eagle's talons are grasping a symbolic gesture: olive branches and arrows. But the reverse on the Barber Dimes exhibits a much simpler design of solely the coin's denomination and another leaf crown.
