  • Description:

    For those, who enjoy collecting the famous 90% collections, the Barber Dime is nothing short of the other series. Like many other collections, the Barber series was minted at all four mints. The Old Mint, served as a branch of the US Mint from 1838-1861, then again from 1879-1909; serving alongside three other mints in order to produce the highly collectible Morgan silver dollar. Decommissioned in 1909, the New Orleans Mint has been used as an assay office, a fallout shelter, and a storage facility for the US Coast Guard. The Old Mint is considered an official historical landmark and is presently the oldest structure in the US. The Old Mint also participated in other important coin series, such as the Barber coinage, wherein it is one of the only coin collections that has the same design on all denominations.

    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 coins. The obverse also contains the coin's date of mintage. The reverse reveals a simple design of its monetary denomination. The 1898-O Barber Dime has a lower mintage of over 2.1 million and is in good condition, exhibiting heavy wear on the entire coin, with main image details missing, such as Liberty's intricate leaf headpiece. All individual coins are packaged in coin sleeves to ensure protection while in transit.
