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.
