Stack's Bowers Auction November 2017 Baltimore U.S. Coins Auction Nov-2017 "Lily Nicole Collection" Pedigree on Holder Ex. HC April 2015 Lot 4992 Premium Gem 1894-O Barber Dime 1894-O Barber Dime. MS-66 (PCGS). Remarkably well struck for a New Orleans Mint Barber dime, this expertly preserved Gem ranks among the finest certified survivors of this conditionally challenging issue. Sharply, if not fully defined throughout with wisps of iridescent toning to smooth satin surfaces. The 1894-O is a low mintage issue (720,000 pieces produced) that, like most New Orleans Mint Barber coins, suffered a high rate of attrition through circulation. It is the second rarest Barber dime from this mint in terms of total number of Mint State examples known, and it is actually the rarest in MS-65 and higher grades, surpassing even the more highly regarded 1895-O. (These rankings are per Jeff Ambio, Collecting & Investing Strategies for Barber Dimes, 2009.) A highlight of the present sale, and a coin that would do justice to the finest date and mint set. PCGS# 4804. NGC ID: 23DU. PCGS Population: 8; 3 finer (MS-67 finest). Provenance: From the Frog Run Farm Collection. Earlier from Heritage's sale of the Lily Nicole Collection, April 2015, lot 4992.
