Barber Dime Values

The Barber Dime was minted by the United States government from 1892-1916. It is 17.9mm in diameter, composed of 90% silver and 10% copper, and has a net weight of .0723 oz. pure silver. The coin takes its name from its designer Charles E. Barber Chief Engraver of the United States Mint from 1879 until his death in 1917. The Barber dime series includes one of the rarest coins in all of U.S. numismatics. There are only 10 known examples of the 1894S dime. All of the known 1894-S dimes are proofs, and all were struck from the same set of dies. It is believed that there were originally 24 proofs struck and there is great speculation as to the fate of the missing 14 coins.
