Description & Analysis

The proof dimes of 1895 are perhaps second only in availability to those of 1894, both dates being common within the framework of Barber Dime proofs. The 1895 issue, however, always carries a premium, as Mint State currency pieces of this date had a very low mintage and are seldom encountered.

Proof 1895 dimes were quite well made, with fully brilliant fields and moderately contrasting devices. Ultra Cameo examples are rare, as the depth of this frosting was far less than for proofs made just a couple years later. The fact that many proofs have been chemically "dipped" over the years to remove toning probably diminished whatever degree of contrast they formerly possessed.

NGC Price and Value Guides Disclaimer

Disclaimer: The prices listed in the various NGC Price and Value Guides are compiled from a number of independent, third party sources in the numismatic community which NGC believes to be reliable. Prices provided are averages, not specific prices for individual coins. Further, because these prices are only updated from time to time, they do not reflect short term pricing trends, which are quite common and are often quite dramatic, given the volatile nature of the collectible coin marketplace. This is especially true for rare coins, where there are fewer sales and greater variations in sale prices. For all of these reasons, the prices in these guides are designed to serve merely as one of many measures and factors that coin buyers and sellers can use in determining coin values. These prices are not intended, and should not be relied upon, to replace the due diligence and — when appropriate — expert consultation that coin buyers and sellers should undertake when entering into a coin transaction. As such, NGC disclaims all warranties, express or implied, with respect to the information contained in the NGC Guides. By using the NGC Guides, the user agrees that neither NGC nor any of its affiliates, shareholders, officers, employees or agents shall have any liability for any loss or damage of any kind, including without limitation any loss arising from reliance on the information contained in the Guides.
