Expert Comments

Jaime Hernandez

The 1894 Barber Dime is not considered a key date but at the same time it is not one of the more common coins in the series. Circulated examples are fairly easy to obtain and are affordable for the most part. In uncirculated condition it becomes scarce. In MS66 condition or higher there are much fewer available and expect to pay a significant premium for examples in MS66 or higher.
