Charles Barber was the Chief Engraver at the Philadelphia Mint in the United States. But he was also British and most collectors don’t know that. He designed many coins from the Dime (10c) to the Half Dollar. His coins circulated from 1892 to 1916, when the designs were replaced with others. We have always found that the smallest denomination, the Dime or 10 Cents is difficult to get hold of. The coins have the bust of Liberty on one side and the denomination on the other side. They are struck in 900 fine Silver and the coins on offer are in Very Good condition, especially considering that they are over 100 years old. If you have bought the other denominations, you will certainly want to add this denomination to your collection, but supplies are limited.
US Mercury Silver Dime 1940-1945. We have just bought a hoard of United States Silver Mercury Dimes or 10 Cent pieces all dated 1940-1945. They are struck in 900 fine Silver and in Fine or better condition. The dealer selected them from lots that came in over the years. These World War II silver coins are one of the most beautiful coins that America has ever issued. They are nicer than usual and we have most dates and mint marks in stock, so the more you order the more different coins we will be able to give you. You are getting a chance on this fabulous hoard.
In 1964 the United States issued its last ever dime or ten cents in silver that was meant to actually circulate. This country stopped using silver to make its coins, Maunday sets aside, in 1946 some 18 years earlier. We have a small collection of these silver times from the late 1950s. They feature the late President Franklin D. Roosevelt on one side a torch with flowers on the other side. Amongst the last ever silver dimes issued for circulation these are in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. Dates will be of our choice.
One of our most popular American coins is the Mercury Dime, but usually we only have them from the 1940’s or War Time. We bought a large group of these 900 fine Silver coins in and they have been sorted by date. We have come up with a much smaller group of coins dated in the 1930’s, from 1930-1939. Why are they more difficult to get? Because the 1930’s was the time of the Great Depression and money was far more important and could buy a heck of a lot more in those days. The coins have a portrait of the god Mercury on one side and a fasces on the other side. All coins will be in Fine condition and dates and mint marks will be of our choice. But the more you order the more different dates and mint marks we will try and give you.
