Ron Guth:

The 1892 Dime is the first date of the new type designed by Charles Barber. As a result, many were saved by collectors as a novelty, so high grade examples are fairly plentiful today. Nearly 1,000 examples have been certified in Mint State. most appearing in the MS63 and MS64 grade levels. Even Gems are plentiful up to the MS67 level, where less than a dozen have been certified by PCGS. A look at the PCGS Condition census for this date shows examples with some spectacularly colorful toning.
