Own a piece of history for history's sake, not for investment.

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

I bought this item to add to my modest collection. Let's face it, they are not making any old coins anymore. I was intrigued by the bronze tone that it had, it made it look more unique. However, when I received the coin, it did not have the bronze tone that I thought it had but it was a fair price for a coin in fair shape. I collect coins more for the history than for the intrinsic value. To me, they are part of history and there is a limited supply and it diminishes every year. It fit in nicely with my collection.

A Barber Dime ..If the coin could talk would you try to listen

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

1912 D U.S. Barber Dime 90% Silver.

Just think this coin from the Denver mint.... in 1912....1912..... On April 10, 1912 the Titanic sinks. There was no television, very little radio. No hot or cold running water. No indoor toilets, No cars...or very few, and worse yet no air conditioning! Pre - WW1 U.S. President Elect was Woodrow Wilson through WW1 until 1921..... If these old coins would or could talk....would you set and listen?

So think....Really cool 101 year old..... Here is a chance for you to own a fabulous part of our history here in the good old U.S.A!

Barber Dimes Are Stunning Rare Coins

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

The barber Dime is a incredible ancient American Coin. This coin is a very sought after collectible and is one of my favorite coins to collect. They have become very hard to find in high grades so if you can get one with better detail cherish it and watch it soar in value

Get silver and gold now.

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

"Tell my experience using the 1912 Barber dime"? What can I say? It arrived quickly, was as described, and buying experience was very good! I,m not using it...I'm collecting it! If I have to use it, then we are suffering economic collapse! At that point, my experience is not good and no one will be reading this review! eBay asks for some pretty silly things at times!
