Great date but pretty worn. Only 1 1/2 years detecting and coin experience, but I think this may be my best find so far.



Rest in Peace

Excellent find,

That coin is in good shape considering that it may have been in the ground for over a century.

I'm starting to second guess whether that is a worn out O mint mark or if the toning coincidentally made it look like the letter O is there. Any thoughts?

Very nice find! After five years of detecting I'm still looking for my first Barber dime.

Congratulations on your find!

I've been detecting for over six years and still haven't found a Barber dime.

That or the dirt that may have been "rubbed" off. They are definitely recent scratches.
