1910 Barber dimes are relatively common across the board and are therefore easy, affordable pick-ups for most coin collectors. As most Barber dimes from the 20th century go, the 1910 dimes were minted in numbers that easily meet the needs of modern-day coin collectors.
Here’s a breakdown of the mintages and values of 1910 Barber dimes:
1910 – 11,520,000; $5
1910-D – 3,490,000; $7
1910-S – 1,240,000; $9
1910 proof – 551; $600
*Values are for coins in a grade of Good-4, unless otherwise noted.
Most notably about that list is the absence of issues from the New Orleans mint, which stopped producing coins in 1909. As the Denver mint had come online in 1906, that facility was integral to keeping mint production and nationwide distribution up. As many numismatists know, the Denver mint would eventually go on to produce the largest share of coins during many years later in the 20th century and into the 21st century.
The Barber dime was designed by Charles E. Barber and was first minted in 1892, replacing the Seated Liberty design. As the 1910s rolled forward, the Seated Liberty design would lose prominence in circulation as tens of millions of Barber dimes swept through pockets and purses.
