Description & Analysis

This issue enjoyed the second highest sales after 1892, and the reason for this is unknown. More than a million currency pieces were struck, so it would not have been hard for a collector to obtain this date at face value.

While quite well made overall and rather common as proof Barber Dimes go, this date is extremely rare or even non-existent with Ultra Cameo contrast. A fair number of Cameo examples have been certified, and these are highly prized as the finest pieces available.
