  • Description:

    The 1893-O Barber Dime has a low mintage of only 1.7 million and is in about good condition. The 1893-O Barber Dime exhibits extreme amounts of wear with the date being the mostly readable and carries the "O" mint-mark, indicating it was minted at the New Orleans Mint. During the time the Barber Dime was in circulation, there were 4 different mints producing the highly collectible coins and known as the golden age in coin minting. Unfortunately, only 2 of those mints still stand today but the others offer an interesting look into coin production history. Among these mints was the New Orleans Mint, also known as the Old Mint. The Old Mint mainly depended on the success of the Morgan's production so much that when the Morgan's production stopped, the Old Mint was decommissioned shortly after. The New Orleans Mint's building as been used as a fallout shelter, an assay office, and a storage facility for the US Coast Guard.

    Like many other coin collections, William Barber used the Head of Liberty to grace the obverse of the Barber coin series. Liberty's look is inspired by a Grecian Goddess and she wears an Acanthus leaf cap as a crown. "United States of America," and the coin's mint date are also simply stamped on the obverse of the Barber coinage. The reverse solely contains the coin's monetary value of one dime.
