Ron Guth:

The 1909-O Dime is an underrated date in the Barber Dime series. For example, 1909-O has a smaller number of certified Mint State examples than the 1909-D, yet the 1909-O is almost invariably priced lower then the 1909-D. It should be the other way around.

Mint State 1909-O Dimes are not too difficult to find. A couple dozen examples have been certified by PCGS in each grade from MS62 to MS64. Even MS65 and MS66 examples can be found with ease; at least a dozen, if not more, are known in each of those grades. The real challenge is to find anything better than MS66; only a few examples are known in MS66+ and MS67

The depth of the strike can be problematic on 1909-O Dimes. Look for strong lettering on all of the obverse lettering, on the lower wreath just right of the bow, and on the grains at the top of the right side of the wreath.
