Owner's Comments

Expert Comments

Ron Guth: The 1898 Barber Dime is a relatively common coin, with hundreds of Mint State examples available for collectors.  The majority of Uncirculated examples fall into the MS-62 to MS-65 grade range.  MS-66 examples are scarce, but not rare.  MS-67 is the top grade for this date, with only four examples showing up on the PCGS Population Report.

The best 1898 Dimes exhibit a full strike, bold luster, and can be found either toned or untoned.
