Description & Analysis

While there is no record of presentation strike Dimes being struck, there is a listing in Breen's proof encyclopedia (1977) of a branch mint proof 1892-O Dollar, suggesting the possibility that at least one set of all the denominations could have been struck. The only reason we can think of for striking such coins in 1892 is to commemorate the passing of the old Seated design and the initial year of Charles Barber's design used on the Dime, Quarter, and Half Dollar.
