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 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.

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.
