    Key date barber?

    Just wondering what everyone thinks the mint mark is on this barber dime? I am leaning towards an S. But it does kind of look like an O at times. Probably just hoping it's an O as it would be a key date. Hopefully the pic comes out ok.

    I am 99% sure it is an "S" Mint mark! You can see the Trumpet ends of the "S", especially at the top. What is the Date of the Barber, if you don't mind disclosing the information?

    That is what I'm thinking too. Date is 1895.

    Sorry! You might want to show it to some Coin Dealers and get their opinions but I believe we are both correct.

    Too fuzzy on my screen. Was there a "C" mint mark made in year 1895?

    I think you mean "CC" for the Carson City Mint as the "C" Mint mark was for the Charlotte Mint which only minted Gold coins. The last Dime to bear a "CC" Mint mark, was the 1878-CC Seated Liberty Dime.
