US Barber Dime 1892 to 1916
US dimes minted from 1892 to 1916 carry the Miss Liberty design of Charles Barber and they are called (no surprise) Barber dimes. Most Barber dimes carry common dates and mint marks. 'Common date' coins catalog in the area of $3 or $4 US dollars in worn condition, rising to between $10 and $50 in average circulated condition, and $60 and up in almost uncirculated condition. Be sure you understand what the word catalog means by looking it up on our Important Terminology page (link at upper left).
A few 'better-date' date and mint mark combinations stand out over the common dates.
