The Barber Coinage debuted in 1892 with fresh designs for the US dime, quarter, and half-dollar coins. In each case, the Barber Coinage design replaced the popular and long-running Seated Liberty image that had been on various US denominations since 1837 when Christian Gobrecht designed the Seated Liberty image for the Philadelphia Mint.
US Mint Chief Engraver Charles E. Barber, son of the former US Mint Chief Engraver William Barber, designed the designs for the dime, quarter, and half dollar in 1892. His series used the same right-profile bust of Liberty on the obverse of all three denominations, while the dime was alone in the use of a reverse design that included only the denomination and a wreath.
The obverse side of the 90% Silver Barber Dimes includes the image of Lady Liberty. This right-profile bust shows Liberty with a wreath crown on her head and short hair up in a cap. The bust of Liberty that Barber created is one of the more masculine effigies of Liberty ever featured on US coins. Inscriptions on this side of the coin include only the nation of issue and the date mark.
On the reverse face of 90% Silver Barber Dimes, you will find the denomination inscribed in the center of the field as “One Dime,” with a wreath around it. The Denver Mint, New Orleans Mint, San Francisco Mint, and Philadelphia Mint all produced the Barber Dimes during the production history of the coin. However, only the Denver, New Orleans, and San Francisco Mints used a mint mark on the reverse below the wreath. These consisted of, in order, “D,” “O,” and “S” mint marks.
These 90% Silver Barber Dimes are available with a total face value of $1 (USD). The coins are available to you with 10 US dimes in total and feature varying date marks or the potential for all coins to have the same date marks. Each coin is in average circulated condition, indicating the coins have average levels of wear and tear with diminished visuals as a result of use in circulation.
