Out of the Barber dimes I searched - this one stuck out. But the liberty on the head was not real clear to me - so I'm thinking vg to f-12. And the tassles on the reverse were worn in part with some present. What are your thoughts?

Hmm - I tried to crop it tighter but that made it smaller. Sorry. Not sure how to make pics bigger.

Fine 12 === yes.
Bow above "D" (split bands) and corn kernels showing on reverse are a good sign.
Looks like all seven letters in liberty show.
By me this is a VG10 but I am picky with my dimes.
Nice color to boot.
Brother, can you spare a "BARBER" dime?

I'd be Fine with F12. (Bad pun warning!)
LIBERTY is fully intact but slightly weak in the middle.

I loved the nice original look of the obverse ; But then I saw the reverse . Two heavy scratches near bottom and what looks like a stain more than corrosion near edge at 8:00 .
VG-10 maybe details .

In Memory of Butch L.
and Jim U. rest in peace .

LIBERTY is a key component of grading Barbers, but strike quality affects LIBERTY quite a bit. Strike quality was all over the lot in Denver in 1906, since it was the mint's maiden voyage. The leaves, hair curl, and ribbon need to be weighed strongly if LIBERTY is light. On balance, this is a bourse floor F, and looks F-12 to me.

The scratch would be more of a problem on EF or higher, but shouldn't detail a mid-grade coin, especially a dime. on a quarter or especially a half dollar, it might be more of an issue.
