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.
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
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.
