Owner's Comments

This coin is a soft gold with an abundance of cartwheel luster, and subtle hints of color. A few specks of grim here and there guarantee this coin has never been dipped and is original as presented. Total PCGS AU population is 114 with 58 graded AU 58. The BCCS rating is R1.

Expert Comments

Ron Guth

The 1913 Dime has the third largest mintage of the entire Barber Dime series, making it one of the most common and affordable examples of the type.  The 1913 Dime is available by the thousands in Mint State across a broad range of grades from MS62 to MS65.  Considering how common the 1913 Dime is, it is one of the few dates in the series where PCGS has not yet certified a single example above MS66+.  

Like most Philadelphia Mint Barber Dimes, the 1913 is usually well-struck.  At the high end, eye appeal takes over, as evidenced by the colorful MS66+ examples illustrated above.
