Expert Comments

Ron Guth: The 1895-O Dime has a small mintage relative to many of the other dates in the series, but in terms of the number of certified examples, it ranks as third most common after the 1892 and 1898.  However, the large majority of the certified examples are circulated, and Mint State examples are very scarce.  Two small clusters appear at the MS63 and MS65 levels, the the population drops off precipitously and tops out at MS66+.  The two best examples are from the Simpson Collection (PCGS MS66) and the Lily Nicole Collection (PCGS MS66+).  David Akers, who specialize in Barber coinage, could only muster a PCGS MS65 (ex Norweb) for his collection.
