    It’s going right into my Dansco Type Album. A very attractive 1900 Barber or Liberty Head Dime. A common date as 17,600,000 were minted. A very nice design by Charles E. Barber, the chief engraver of the mint for the times. His B initial is located at the truncation of the neck.

    Never was a big fan of the Barber design... However I am a huge fan of well struck coins... And that is certainly one of them. Super nice dime.

    Barber coins are one of my least favorite designs...unless they are in this kind of condition!

    It took awhile to find a decent one but I think this is decent.

    Happy for you. Nice looking coin, except the hit on the nose.

    The heck with them, I LIKE Barbers.

    Unless, of course they screw up my hair.

    Nice coin

    I know it's tacky to ask, but how much did it set you back...

    It’s small so I can live with that. The strike is strong and that’s a good thing.

    Is that a mistake?

    Nope;)you heard him right,in this condition it should be a $200+ coin if not cleaned.Which i have a feeling it could be,but anyway someone played fair and easy in general.

    Pretty much said what I was thinking. Not a fan of Barbers, but if you must have one go for a very nicely and fully struck example.

    Lowball at an auction. A lack of bidders. I was only the 3rd bid. What a deal! :)

    I see no signs of a cleaning but I do see very light wear so a high AU grade.

    Congrats on an awesome win. And for the record, any Barber with a nice crisp, strong strike like that easily has a home in my collection. I love it.
