Description & Analysis

Somewhat hoarded at the time as the last dime of its type, the 1916(P) Barber issue is very common across all grades through MS 65. Even these gems, however, are usually less than fully struck, the illustrated example being typical in its obverse weakness.

The large and crude date style from 1915 was carried into 1916.

Most of this issue was coined during the second half of the year, as the Mint had delayed dime production in anticipation that the new Winged Head Liberty type would be ready for mass production much sooner than it was. While work with the new type dragged on, the demand for additional dimes was too great to wait any longer, and many millions were struck of this old design.
