  • Description:

    The 1894-O Barber Dime has one of the lowest mintages in the series with only 720,000 minted and is difficult to locate in most grades. The 1894-O is in very good condition, exhibiting heavy amounts of wear, on both sides of the coin, and with a readable date. All individual coins are packaged in coin sleeves to ensure protection while in transit. 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 Dime. The reverse, on the half dollar and quarter, 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. The Barber Dime was too small for such a design so its reverse solely includes its monetary value of one dime with a few most olive branches.
