Barber 10C 1892 10C 1892
Choice $145 First Year Issue, Gray-Blue and Rose Toning, Steely Luster. Another case of where the GFRC images are unable to capture bright light appearance and eye appeal. This 1892 Barber dime offers pretty gray-blue and rose coloration that is enhanced by the underlying steely luster. Embedded within the reverse ebony-gray are rose, purple and green colors. A strictly original and choice example that will certainly please the new owner. Please trust this description and not the images. Housed in new large font NGC holder.
Barber 10C 1893 10C 1893
Gem $1085 Superb Eye Appeal, Gem Original, Swirling Cartwheels, CAC Approval. Barber dime mintage saw a dramatic reduction during the 1893 production year with most entering circulation rather than being saved as a first year of design issue. The 1893 CAC approved population also shows a sharp decrease from 216 to only 46. This 1893 offering is an obvious gem with rich frosty luster and swirling cartwheels. Obverse toning is mostly olive-gold with some variegated patterns. Reverse toning is exceptional with peripheral gold and lighted shades at the center. The slightest chatter in the right obverse field accounts for the assigned grade though eye appeal is superior. There is a small cud on Liberty's cap near ST(A)TES that will identify the die. Housed in PCGS Gen 4.4 (2005-2011) holder with CAC approval. CDN CAC guide is presently $1090.
Barber 10C 1903O 10C 1903-O
Choice $150 Thick Crusty Golden-Brown Patina, Steely Fields, Choice Surfaces, Lakeland Collection. The Lakewood mother and son collecting team appear to love their silver type coinage with crusty surfaces. So is the case for this choice 1903 New Orleans struck Barber dime. A thick golden-brown skin covers both sides with deeper coloration on the obverse, as expected for being stored obverse side up. Strike is complete. Housed in new large font NGC holder.
Barber 10C 1904S 10C 1904-S
Choice $1500 Very Scace and Challenging CAC Approved, None Finer Through MS64. 1904 San Francisco strikes are scarce due to low mintage and heavy circulation up through the Depression Era. In Mint State, none are CAC approved until the MS64 or better level. The lone three CAC approved AU58s are the only alternatives for those seeking a choice specimen at fair value. This fresh offering is one of the three AU58s with green bean approval. Fields exhibit steely surfaces that are entirely without abrasions. Strike is thoroughly executed on both sides with the reverse being quite impressive in terms of minute wreath details. Housed in PCGS Gen 4.5 (2011-2013) holder with CAC approval.
Barber 10C 1912D 10C 1912-D
Gem $600 Glowing Frosted Luster, Swirling Cartwheels, Lightly Toned, Superb Eye Appeal. A stunning 1912 Denver struck Barber dime that has been well preserved and accurately certified with gem status. One immediately notes the textured frosted luster and swirling cartwheels during initial bright light inspection. Strike is hammered. Obverse toning is limited to peripheral aquamarine and orange-gold shades while the reverse features center rose surrounded by intermixed green and blue shades. GFRC images, especially the reverse, fail to capture this gem's beauty. A new purchase that warrants a JUST BUY IT NOW recommendation as I absolutely recommend this piece. Housed in PCGS Gen 6.1 (2020-2021) holder with CAC approval.

Choice $350 Brilliant Frosted Luster, Swirling Cartwheels, Mostly Copper-Gold Coloration.

An eye catching example with brilliant frosty luster that is more prevalent on the obverse. Peripheral copper-gold extends to reverse along with a lovely blue arc at the rim. Angled lighting enticing vibrant cartwheel action. Strike is fully executed including the pesky right eagle claw and arrow feathers. Housed in new large font NGC holder.

Barber 25C 1908O 25C 1908-O
Gem $2750 Eric P. Newman Collection, Deeply Toned, Strong Underlying Frosty Luster, Mountaineer Collection. Ex: "Colonel." E.H.R. Green and Eric P. Newman Collection pedigree. Barber quarter branch mint coinage history remains consistent; coinage was needed in the local channels of commerce, and few pieces were set aside in Uncirculated condition. Regardless of 5.7 million quarters struck in the New Orleans mint during 1908, few superb gem survivors are known. PCGS population is all of eleven pieces at the MS66 grade level. The Eric P. Newman Collection pieces are most special since being stored in old paper envelope for decades. Silver surfaces are typically covered with deep, original layers of blue-gray and faint traces of reddish patina. The mint luster is thick and frosty with vibrant cartwheels. Strike is complete with all device details deeply impressed. Housed in original NGC Eric P Newman brown label holder. This piece previously sold at the Heritage November 2013 sale for $3055.

When on the hunt, originality and eye appeal should be the primary concerns. GFRC has added this attractively toned specimen for that reason. Original surfaces are covered with a thin layer of mint frost that becomes brilliant under a light source. Cartwheel action is consistent with the certified grade. Both sides are toned with center rose and peripheral blues. Strike is a tad soft at the centers. Housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 (2015-2020) holder.
