1892 4796 1892 10C AU58 224 1483 2261487
This coin has all the looks of a truly original album coin, including the hint of a thumb print from a former owner. Cobalt blue toning at the obverse rims and a much more colorful reverse. It also has a satiny appearance that makes it quite attractive. Total PGCS AU population is 229 with 128 in AU 58. The BCCS rating is R1.
1892-O 1892-O 10C 0 0 00
1892-S 4798 1892-S 10C AU58 30 117 30117
With wonderful eye appeal, this coin is classic in terms of its beauty. A coin like this should never be passsed on even if you don't collect the series. Satiny luster accented by champagne toning at the rims. Total PCGS AU population is 39 with 18 in AU 58. The BCCS rating is R4.
1893 4800 1893 10C AU58 47 286 47286
As the second year of issue this coin was somewhat saved although much more difficult to locate than its 1892 counterpart. The coin is "hammered" with excellent details. The rims are dark violet that lighten towards the centers of each side. Total PCGS AU population is 50 with 33 in AU 58. The BCCS rating is R3.
1893/2 4799 1893/2 10C AU58 9 35 935
1893-O 4801 1893-O 10C AU58 15 126 15128
Smoky album toning is quite evident with this boldly struck coin. Deep cobalt gradually turning to a soft burnished gold. The reverse is slightly more subtle. Total PCGS AU population is 19 with 9 in AU 58. The BCCS rating is R4.
1893-S 4802 1893-S 10C AU55 17 148 17154
Another classically toned example with lots of luster still radiating through shades of gold toning giving a very attractive irridescence. This coin comes well struck with a satiny luster. Total PCGS AU population is 32 with 12 in AU 55, with 14 graded higher. The BCCS rating is R4.
1894 4803 1894 10C AU58 35 166 35166
This date is one of the few Philadelphia issues to be considered a better date with mintage slightly above one million. It comes well struck displaying toast over mint luster with a strong Liberty. The reverse is more toned at the rims with a light center. Total PCGS AU population is 57 with 26 in AU58. The BCCS rating is R4.
1894-O 4804 1894-O 10C AU55 15 50 1550
This is a key date in the series and a truly rare find. This example is probably the most attractive O mint in the set. With an abundance of toning starting in the fields and intensifying as it moves towards to the rims. Soft yellows turning to golds and finally irridescent greens. Total PCGS AU population is 23 with 8 in AU 55 and only 3 graded higher. The BCCS rating is R5.
1895 4806 1895 10C AU58 14 120 14120
1895 may be the toughest year in the Barber dime series, with all three examples a serious challenge. This coin has beautiful toning in conjunction with exceptional luster. Total PCGS AU population is 33 with 9 in AU 58. The BCCS rating is R5.
1895-O 4807 1895-O 10C AU58 10 39 1039
This is one of the few coins in the Barber Dime series where the MS version has a higher rarity rating then the AU. The 95-O is the key to the set. The toning is quite nice with a mix of gold and green irridescence with rose hues moving to the centers, although perhaps too darkly toned for some. A strong strike for an O mint coin, note Liberty's head band and the reverse detail. Total PCGS AU population is 33 with 9 in AU 58. The BCCS rating is R5.
1895-S 4808 1895-S 10C AU58 22 104 24106
The toning is especially attractive on both the obverse and reverse of this dime with the centers surrounded by blues, golds, and greens. Mark Goodman did an exceptional job of imaging here. The 95-S is the "easiest" of the 1895 dime series. Total PCGS AU population of 34 with 16 in AU 58. The BCCS rating is R4.
1896 4809 1896 10C AU55 16 163 16164
This coin ranks in the top third by total mint state population, and is probably a bargain in terms of price. The obverse toning is quite distinctive, moving from east to west with charcoal-blue at the rims, to warm browns. Still plenty of underlying mint luster showing through. The reverse coloring is much more subtle, allowing the wreath details to pop. Total PCGS AU population is 25 with 9 in AU 55 and 11 graded higher in AU 58. The BCCS rating is R3.
1896-O 4810 1896-O 10C AU58 3 47 347
In terms of certified AU population (with only eleven) this is the most difficult coin in the set. There is just a splash of toning on the cap moving outward across the tops of the letters to the rims. Total PCGS AU population is 11 with only 2 in AU 58. The BCCS rating is R5.
1896-S 4811 1896-S 10C AU55 3 91 391
Yet another tough early date dime. With its low mintage the coin attracts a lot of collector attention. Splashes of toast and rust at the rims turning to soft blue in the center. This coin does not command the premium of the 96-O. Total PCGS AU population is 12 with 2 in AU 50 and 3 in AU 58. The BCCS rating is R5.
1897 4812 1897 10C AU58 68 467 68469
Light obverse toning with a charcol like influence turning to sea green. The reverse is rather ordinary with the exception of the mint luster. A strong stirke with an unfortunates hit below Liberty's eye yest still an attractive coin. Total PCGS AU population is 62 with 43 graded in AU58. The BCCS rating is R2.
1897-O 4813 1897-O 10C AU55 12 90 1290
This coin is nearly impossible to locate in AU as evidenced by the nearly two and a half years it took to locate. This example was located by Glenn Holsonbake at a fifty table show in Southern California. Glenn found it while looking at another dealer's inventory. That dealer had acquired it from one of his regular customers just a couple of days earlier. The coin is an old green holder and was owned by the previous collector for many years. It has tangerine toning off the rims and into the fields, with an abundance of underlying luster. The obverse also has a touch of pearl iridescence surrounding the date and through America. It is the prize of this collection. Total PCGS AU population is 18, with 9 in AU55 and only two graded higher. The BCCS rating is R5.
1897-S 4814 1897-S 10C AU55 9 107 9107
The prior owner of this coin tells me it came from an old Philadelphia collection assembled mostly from the 1930's through the 1950's and was kept in a Kraft paper envelope, in an old red cardboard stock box. The obverse has a gun metal blue toning, while the reverse is stunning, with gold turning to orange, to rust at the rims. The 97-S is more limited in terms of of supply, but the 97-O has much more demand. Another R4 coin, and one of the best kept secrets in the Barber dime series. Total PCGS AU population is 20 with 6 in AU 55 and only 4 higher in AU 58.
1898 4815 1898 10C AU58 77 544 77544
A nice example. Total PCGS AU population is 78 with 40 in AU58. The BCCS rating is R1.
1898-O 4816 1898-O 10C AU58 11 64 1164
A great example of a difficult coin that was not widely saved. This coin is CAC stickered and has a good strike with a lot of mint luster coming through gold toning on the obverse, and more significant reverse toning with a hint of irridescence at the rims. Total PCGS AU population is 20 with only 5 in AU58. The BCCS rating is R5.
1898-S 4817 1898-S 10C AU55 19 76 1976
A light toning of subtle pink and blue just begins to indicate how nice this coin is. The reverse has a strong strike and an abundance of mint luster. Much of the San Francisco coinage from 1898 though 1900 was shipped to the Phillipines and the coins that came back have some rather unusual color as a result of the humid environment. Total PCGS AU population is 18 with 5 in AU 55 and 3 in AU 58. The BCCS rating is R5.
1899 4818 1899 10C AU55 34 443 34443
Light gold toning on both the obverse and reverse with some darker coloring at the rims. This has been a great coin for a long time. The 99-P comes well struck and is a common date. Total PCGS AU population is 68 with 18 in AU 55 and 40 higher in AU 58. BCCS rating is R1.
1899-O 4819 1899-O 10C AU58 14 57 1458
This date and mint mark is much tougher to find, particularly well struck. With light gun metal gray toning on the obverse, and an abundance of color on the reverse, this is an exceptional "slider" coin. Total PCGS AU population is 20 with 6 in AU 58. The BCCS Rating is R4.
1899-S 4820 1899-S 10C AU58 22 121 22123
A wonderful example with browns turning to violet on Liberty's neck and the obverse high points. The reverse is abundant with mint luster. PCGS AU population is 24 with 12 in AU 58. The BCCS rating is R3.
1900 4821 1900 10C AU58 24 258 24258
The irridescent rim toning is exceptional on this coin and so is the strike. This issue may be more scarce then the price guide suggets. Total PCGS AU population is 31 with 10 in AU 58. The BCCS rating is R1.
1900-O 4822 1900-O 10C AU55 13 65 1365
This coin has been a long-time favorite of serious dime collectors. It's scarce and comes poorly struck as is evidenced by the weakness in the headband. Just a hint of champagne toning on this example. Total PCGS AU population is 15 with 9 in AU 55 and only 4 in AU 58. The BCCS rating is R5.
1900-S 4823 1900-S 10C AU58 35 159 35159
One of the most abundant of certified AU dimes and the last of the three Phillipine dates. This example is extremely is well struck, and although this issue was not minted in a proof version the surfaces are about as close to proof as a coin can be. Cartwheel luster with the softest of straw toning. Total PCGS AU population 66 with 22 in AU 58. The BCCS rating is R2.
1901 4824 1901 10C AU58 52 391 52391
This coin is tougher to locate than the guides suggest and was one of the last dates to be located. Light red, blue, and green toning radiating off the rims into the fields, with nice luster. Total PCGS AU population is 62 with 26 in AU 58. The BCCS rating is R1.
1901-O 4825 1901-O 10C AU58 12 68 1372
A very attractive coin with consistent toning on the obverse and reverse. The 01-O is more available then the 01-S, although finding an example like this, will be a challenge. Total PCGS AU population is 29 with only 7 in AU 58. The BCCS rating is R3.
1901-S 4826 1901-S 10C AU58 9 56 956
A very attractive coin with an exciting palette of golds, browns, and greens, on both the obverse and reverse. The 01-S has a low mintage and strong demand. Total PCGS AU population is 20 with only 8 in AU 58. The BCCS rating is R4.
1902 4827 1902 10C AU58 39 225 39226
This was the last coin to be located for this set, and is an excellent example. Cartwheel luster with shades of orange at the rims and splashes of sea green irridescence throughout. A great strike makes this coin even more attractive. The reverse has a touch more white at the center. Total PCGS AU population is 41 with 26 in AU 58. The BCCS rating is R1.
1902-O 4828 1902-O 10C AU55 15 94 1594
The toning at the rims is quite dark, almost ink black with a just a hint of blue, and lightens nicely as it moves into the fields. The reverse is more exciting with sunset orange coming through the wreath details. Total PCGS AU population is 28 with 7 in AU 55 and 11 in AU 58. The BCCS rating is R1.
1902-S 4829 1902-S 10C AU55 21 104 21104
An unusual blend of color on this well struck coin. In addition it's tough to locate. Total PCGS AU population is 30 with 11 in AU 55 and 10 in AU 58. The BCCS rating is R4.
1903 4830 1903 10C AU58 27 160 27160
Subtle yet attractive toast toning makes this coin a keeper. Total PCGS AU population is 34 with 12 in AU 58. The BCCS rating is R1.
1903-O 4831 1903-O 10C AU55 29 152 29152
A very attractive example particularly for an O mint dime. The toning is uniform on the obverse and reverse with shades of gold and rose and underlying luster and a very nice strike. Total PCGS AU population is 70 with 16 in AU 55 and 27 graded higher. The BCCS rating is R3.
1903-S 4832 1903-S 10C AU58 11 63 1163
This coin is extremely difficult to locate. It was purchased raw from an auction house in Austrailia and graded by PCGS in 2011. Total PCGS AU population is 28 with only 8 in AU 58. The BCCS rating is R5.
1904 4833 1904 10C AU55 11 250 11250
Another exceptional example in this set with beautiful toning exhibiting shades of blue and purple, in addition to being well struck. Total PCGS AU population is 23 with 6 in AU 55 and 11 in AU 58. The BCCS rating is R1.
1904-S 4834 1904-S 10C AU58 11 74 1174
Subtle blue/green toning and attractive luster over relatively unmarked surfaces on this key date coin. This spot was previously occupied by an XF-45 coin for a long time before finding this example, which was found at the same fifty table show as the 97-O in this set. Total PCGS AU population is 33 with 7 in AU58. The BCCS rating is R4.
1905 4835 1905 10C AU58 35 230 35231
This coin is not a difficult coin to locate. The coin is bright although does not appear to have been dipped, and still has lots of mint luster. Total PCGS AU population is 38 with 18 having the AU 58 designation. The BCCS rating is R1.
1905-O 4836 1905-O 10C AU58 14 136 14136
A beautiful coin to have in a circulated set, with a hint of champagne toning, a great strike and loaded with luster. Total PCGS AU population is 27 with 9 in AU 58. The BCCS rating is R3.
1905-O Micro O 94836 1905-O 10C AU58 7 8 78
1905-S 4837 1905-S 10C AU58 42 185 42186
Dark bronze toning, with the slightest shades of rose and blue on the high points, and a strike that is amazing. This coin has been put away for a very long time. Total PCGS AU population of 49 with 24 in AU58. The BCCS rating is R2.
1906 4838 1906 10C AU58 62 428 62428
The 1906 is notorious for a weak strike, so this example is a pleasant suprise. Nice hair detail, satiny luster, with a golden rose obverse. The reverse is equally attractive with a bold strike. Total PCGS AU population is 62 with 34 in AU58. The BCCS rating is R1.
1906-D 4839 1906-D 10C AU55 19 160 20160
The first year of the Barber dime from the Denver mint and what an example to have in the set. The toning is amazing, with gold shading to apricot. This date/mint combination is suprisingly difficult in higher grades. Total PCGS AU population is only 26 with 8 in AU 55 and another 8 in AU58. The BCCS rating is R2.
1906-O 4840 1906-O 10C AU58 6 187 6187
A wonderfully toned example, with shades of brown, gold and orange on both the obverse and reverse. The O mint is typically struck soft, and this is a challenging coin to locate. Total PCGS AU population is 21 with only three in AU58. The BCCS rating is R4.
1906-S 4841 1906-S 10C AU55 14 129 14129
The Cameo like appearance of "Liberty" makes this another must have coin for this set. The obverse has shades of blue and rose while the reverse has splashes of yellow and green. Total PCGS AU population is 34 with 4 in AU 55 and 25 in AU 58. The BCCS rating is R4.
1907 4842 1907 10C AU58 58 500 58500
A well struck example of this coin, and with only five AU58 graded coins this is an important addition. Total PCGS AU population is 42 with only five being designated AU58. The BCCS rating is R1.
1907-D 4843 1907-D 10C AU55 16 80 1680
A very nice AU55, this coin has a scarcity that defies easy explanation. David Feigenbaum writes of a lost shipment when a delivery wagon toppled in the Black Canyon near Gunnison Colorado. Champagne rim toning with marbelized splashes of cobalt blue and rose. Total PCGS population is 24 with 9 in AU 55 and only 6 graded higher. The BCCS rating is R4.
1907-O 4844 1907-O 10C AU58 13 147 13147
The 1907-O is one of the poorest struck dates of the series. This example is certainly an exception with an abundance of hair detail over Liberty's forehead and a fully struck LIBERTY on the head band. The reverse details are equally well struck. A yellow/gold under toning covered with cobalt blue and rust. Professional imaging will be necessary to show the ture beauty of this one. Total PCGS AU population is 20 with 4 in AU 53 and 11 graded higher. The BCCS rating is R3.
1907-S 4845 1907-S 10C AU58 40 100 40100
The previous coin in this spot was a former Eliasberg coin, but did not match up well with the other coins in the set. A soft luster appears on both the observse and reverse with pastel toning of voilet and pink. Thank you to Mike Hayes for the trade. Total PCGS AU population is 71 with 24 in AU58. The BCCS rating is R-3.
1908 4846 1908 10C AU55 31 459 32465
A very nice strike and wonderful toning make this coin a treat to own. Liberty's cheek has a green irridesence beaming out to light gold and then darkening at the rims. The reverse has great detail and toning consistent with the obverse. Total PCGS AU population is 40 with 9 in AU 55 and 25 in AU 58. The BCCS rating is R1.
1908-D 4847 1908-D 10C AU58 27 157 29158
It doesn't matter what coin/series you collect, this coin is perfect, and had to be put away a long time ago. Dark toning at the rims to only slightly lighten up towards the centers. If a collector was to put together the dream "crusty" set this would be a must have coin. Total PCGS AU population is 31 with 14 in AU 58. The BCCS rating is R1.
1908-O 4848 1908-O 10C AU55 13 130 13130
The 1908-O is nearly impossible to find. The experts tell us the coin comes softly struck and this example falls into that category. A white coin and certainly "dipped" but still an acceptable example. Total PCGS AU population is 10 with 5 in AU55 and 2 graded higher. The BCCS rating is R4.
1908-S 4849 1908-S 10C AU58 24 124 24124
Dick Quitmeyer at Yellow River Coins has a nice eye for Barber dimes, and this coin is an excellent example. Add to that, knowing that this set was 13 years in the making before locating this coin indicates that this example is much tougher than collectors might think. Fully toned with shades of blue, purple, and rose with a good stike, consistent on both the obverse and reverse. Total PCGS AU population is 36 with 13 in AU 58. The BCCS rating is R3.
1909 4850 1909 10C AU58 36 364 36364
There is nothing unusual about this coin, it's pleasing, darker in color and plenty of cartwheel luster, showing the true beauty of an original coin. The total PCGS AU population is 42 with 17 in AU 58. The BCCS rating is R1. While not part of this set for Everyman purposes I was also fortunate enough to locate a second example of this coin (also in PCGS 58) struck 10% off center, and have included images of it as well.
1909-D 4851 1909-D 10C AU58 13 86 1386
I don't know Tom Casey, but in reviewing the provenance of this set, Tom's name, or his set TCP III, appear nearly often as David Feigenbaum and Mike Hayes. This is a great example of a coin that is very difficult to locate in this condition. Shades of gold and toast accented by mint luster in the fields. Total PCGS AU population is 31 with 14 in AU58. The BCCS rating is R4.
1909-O 4852 1909-O 10C AU58 22 131 22131
The 1909-O is is typically struck softer than the other 09 dimes. This example however is struck quite well particularly on the obverse, and is very original with subtle toning and satin luster under an original skin. Total PCGS AU population is 25 with 14 in AU58. The BCCS rating is R3.
1909-S 4853 1909-S 10C AU58 11 70 1170
A very challenging coin to locate and struck well for an 09-S. Mostly white with an abundance of mint luster and champagne toning on both the obverse and reverse. Total PCGS AU population is 17 with 7 in AU58. The BCCS rating is R4.
1910 4854 1910 10C AU58 63 550 63550
1910-P has the highest mint population of any P-mint coin since 1898. Satiny luster with plenty of gold toning. Total PCGS AU population is 59 with 34 in AU58. The BCCS rating is R1.
1910-D 4855 1910-D 10C AU58 15 99 1599
A challenging, perhaps nearly impossible coin to locate in AU58. The coin is white with remarkably near perfect sufaces. Total PCGS AU population is 19 with only 8 in AU58. The BCCS rating is R3.
1910-S 4856 1910-S 10C AU58 11 99 1199
Butter rum toning on both the obverse and reverse with shades of indigo on the north east corner of the reverse. This coin appears to have been wedged into its album for a very long time. A nice strike for a very challenging coin to locate. Total PCGS AU population is 24 with 7 in AU 58. BCCS rating is R4.
1911 4857 1911 10C AU58 135 1150 1351150
Light gold toning on the obverse with soft yellows at the rims. The reverse has a much greater range of color and is quite attractive. Well struck and loaded with mint luster, this coin is a whisper from MS. Total PCGS population in AU is 127 with a staggering 85 in AU 58. The BCCS rating is R1.
1911-D 4858 1911-D 10C AU58 21 284 21284
As the series progresses into the later dates R1 coins are much more prevelant. That means the coins selected should be special, and this is the perfect example. An absolutely stunning strike with toning to match. Copper, rose, bronze, and deep blue green, make this a beautiful example. The reverse is a dead on match. Total PCGS AU population is 39 with 11 in AU 58. The BCCS rating is R1.
1911-S 4859 1911-S 10C AU58 32 268 32268
In the dime series the 1911-S has the third highest mint production of the San Francisco dates. A strong strike is evident, but the toning does make it a challenge to fully appreciate all of the details including the reverse mint mark. Burnt toast, bronze and rose are the primary colors. The reverse is equally toned with the same colors. Total PCGS AU population is 32 with 20 in AU 58. The BCCS rating is R1.
1912 4860 1912 10C AU58 126 1047 1261047
The 1912 ranks in the top five of PCGS AU graded coins. Soft luster peeking out from gun metal gray and subtle golds on the obverse, with a bit more life on the reverse. Total PCGS AU population is 115 with 72 in AU58. The BCCS rating is R1.
1912-D 4861 1912-D 10C AU58 73 327 73327
I'm not quite sure how a silver coin becomes "rusty", but this one did it. Some underlying luster with lots of yellow/gold make this a very attractive example. The letters of Liberty are bold, although the hair is a bit soft. The reverse is primarily toned in shades of rose. Total PCGS AU population is 79 with 36 in AU 58. The BCCS rating is R1. While not part of this set for Everyman purposes I was also fortunate enough to locate a second example of this coin (also in PCGS 58) Broadstruck out of collar, and have included images of it as well.
1912-S 4862 1912-S 10C AU58 46 202 46202
Blast white and appears quite original with plenty of cartwheel luster and a strong strike. With those attributes, this "slider" deserves a spot in the Registry set. Total PCGS AU population is 63 with 30 in AU58. The BCCS rating is R2.
1913 4863 1913 10C AU58 145 904 145905

1913-S 4864 1913-S 10C AU58 23 126 23126
This coin is extremely difficult to locate. The toning is a soft dusty rose, highlighted with cartwheel luster from the rims well into the centers of the coin. The consistency of the toning and luster from obverse to reverse as well as its original skin is quite surprising and unusual in the dime series. There is a substantial premium associated with this coin, and the price guide is not a good indicator of market value. Total PCGS AU population is 42 with 15 in AU 58. The BCCS rarity rating is R5.

1915 4868 1915 10C AU58 37 498 37498

Total PCGS AU population is 52 with 20 in AU 58. The BCCS rating is R1.
