BCCS Barber Dimes Rarity Ratings


1901-S Barber Dime

In 2008, the Barber Coin Collectors' Society conducted a survey to ascertain rarity ratings for Barber Dimes. The survey did not estimate the actual number of surviving pieces, but rather a rating for relative availability and rarity.


 
       Results of BCCS Barber Dime Rarity Survey - 2008


For the sake of this survey, the following rarity ratings were used:

R1: Common date and grade
R2: Better date and grade
R3: Tough date – available, but may require some looking
R4: Scarce – may or may not find at larger shows/auctions
R5: Very scarce – only a few offered for sale each year
R6: Almost never seen – only one or two may be offered for sale in a year’s time
R7: Rare – a single specimen might, on average, be offered for sale once every few years
R8: Unique, or nearly so
