Owner's Comments

1895 may be the toughest year in the Barber dime series, with all three examples a serious challenge. This coin has beautiful toning in conjunction with exceptional luster. Total PCGS AU population is 33 with 9 in AU 58. The BCCS rating is R5.

Expert Comments

Ron Guth: The production of Dimes at the Philadelphia Mint eased up substantially in 1895 and, for the first time since 1881, the mintage fell below one million coins.  In fact, the 1895 Dime has one of the smallest mintages of the entire series and commands one of the largest premiums across all grades.  In spite of the smaller mintage, the 1895 Dime is not particularly rare in Mint State, so collectors have ample opportunities to obtain a nice example.  The typical Mint State 1895 Dime is MS64 with a dozen or more known in MS65 and MS66.  In MS67, the 1895 Dime is extremely rare, and the best examples include a single PCGS MS67+ is a lone NGC MS68.
