Thanks kbbpll, I totally missed that. I believe this is reverse 1, thin ribbon which is 1900 and before. The thick ribbon, reverse 2 is 1901 and later. 1901 used both reverses. True?

Reverse 1 1892-1901

Reverse 2 1901-1916

Actually, yours is Reverse 2. I discovered, or at least documented, a third reverse 1900-1901, published in BCCS journal a couple years ago. It maintained the thin ribbon, but the leaf veins and corn changed. Then the thick ribbon (now Reverse 3) was introduced around April 1901, with both 2 & 3 used at all three mints. There are 11 transition varieties from 1899-1905, mostly SF. I posted a thread in the varieties main section a while back with a link to a slideshow I put together on these, which you can find by searching (it didn't get much attention here). It's obscure but they're fun to look for.

So:
1892-1899 Reverse 1
1900-1901 Reverse 2
1901-1916 Reverse 3

I estimate your 1901 Rev2 was about 20% of the mintage in Philadelphia.

Here's a quick look at the Rev1 -> Rev2 changes.

kbbpll, great info, thank you. NGC only shows two reverses which is what I used. You taught me something today, made getting up worth while.

Even the previously known info is often incomplete/inaccurate on these. NGC for example for 1901-S says "All 1901-S dimes were coined with reverse dies taken from the old hub on which the lower right ribbon is slender" and yet their image is of the "new" thick ribbon hub. Etc. None of the TPGs, as far as I know, designate the previously known varieties. Some of the SF transitions weren't really published (in BCCS) until 2017. I contacted a few publishers about the third reverse type (and three new transition varieties) and got zero interest, so I gave up. I mention them on forums when something like this pops up.

VF20 as well. I had no idea there was a design change to the reverse either.. and it's about the same time as the Morgan dollar C3 to C4 reverse design change.

Thanks @dave700x, I didn't know about the Morgan C3/C4 changes. This looks like a good description http://vamworld.com/wiki/Reverses,_..._C4C3_and_C3
It's great to have that additional context. There were also changes to both sides of the quarters and halves in 1900 & 1901, and the reverse of the V nickel, just as subtle. Barber was a busy guy.

Yes it appears the Barber shop was busy in that time period. I would love to find out why these minor changes came about.
