    Gem 1892-S Barber Dime, An Elusive First-Year Issue

    1892-S 10C MS 65 NGC. Among first-year Barber coinage, those issues produced at the San Francisco Mint have long been recognized as more elusive than their P and O-mint counterparts. The dime reports an original mintage of fewer than 1 million coins, and the finest certified survivors include the present example. Both sides are fully lustrous and sharply defined, but the golden-blue and lavender iridescence that blankets the obverse is confined to the periphery on the reverse. Both major grading services report nine coins in MS 65 and only one finer (2/00). (NGC ID# 23DM, PCGS# 4798)

    Weight: 2.49 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper

    When it came to selling my coin collection I decided they were my first and only choice. They never disappoint. Excellent prices when selling through their auctions and you don’t even have to put any reserves on any coins. Simply the biggest company but more importantly the best.
