Description & Analysis

The availability of circulated examples is affected by the many coins shipped to The Philippines following the Spanish-American War. Most of these have been repatriated and are seen today as XF or AU coins that are sometimes darkly toned or improperly cleaned. Problem-free examples of this issue are scarce in all grades.

Mint State survivors are quite scarce, gems being truly rare. These coins typically are well struck and may be somewhat prooflike in their fields.

A very minor misplaced date variety is known for the 1899-S dime. This and similar varieties are cataloged and illustrated in Kevin Flynn's book The Authoritative Reference on Barber Dimes.

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.
