Order now and get five consecutive years of the Barber dime – one from each of the last five years of issue – 1912 to 1916! You’ll own classic 90% silver dimes from the Philadelphia Mint and named for their designer, Charles Barber – who modified the large Liberty profile on the Morgan dollar by cropping her hair. The reverse uses nearly the same design as earlier Seated Liberty dimes.
During its years of issue, a Barber dime would buy two loaves of bread, or 2 tickets to a nickelodeon movie, so few were set aside. Plus, mintages were much lower – roughly 1% of today’s figures. The passage of nearly a century, and loss through circulation and silver melts, have taken their toll on the number of surviving coins, making them hard to find in quantity. This affordable set gives you 5 consecutive Barber dimes, from the last 5 years of the series. All the handpicked circulated coins still have a nice appearance.
Millions of collectors, attracted by National Park quarters and Presidential dollars, have joined the hobby ranks and are looking for these old-time favorites too. Don’t wait to order your set!
