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 1897 10C 1897

Only a select group of examples survive in this remarkable state, and advanced specialists should seize the opportunity to acquire one of the finest certified pieces. A mélange of olive-green, russet, and ice-blue toning covers the obverse. The reverse patina is mesmerizing with electric-blue and red-violet shades that transition to amber and coppery hues. This PR68 certified example approaches perfection for the issue. Housed in new large font NGC holder.

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.

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.
