Description & Analysis

With a mintage of exactly 1 million pieces, the 1909-S is the demarcation point for the Barber dime issues with lower emissions--those in the six-figure range. Excluding the near-inaccessible 1894-S ultra-rarity, there are 13 Barber dime issues with mintages below 1 million coins. They fall generally into two categories, with a couple of flukes besides. The first and largest group is S-mint semikeys: From smallest to largest emissions they include the 1913-S, 1896-S, 1901-S, 1903-S, 1904-S, 1915-S, and 1892-S. Mintages range from 510,000 coins for the 1913-S to 990,000 pieces for the 1892-S. The second group of low-mintage coins comprises the O-mint rarities, in order of mintage (smallest to largest) including the 1895-O, 1896-O, 1897-O, and 1894-O. Their mintage ranging from 440,000 pieces for 1895-O to 720,000 for 1894-O. The two 'fluke,' largely forgotten low-mintage issues are the 1895 Philadelphia, at 690,000 pieces, and the 1909-D, at 954,000 examples.
