Old school Barber dime album completed!

moursundmoursund Posts: 3,207 ✭✭✭✭✭

Help me celebrate a full album!

Not too many compromises... Most/all G06-F, with some eye and jawline.

Barber quarters might be next, but I hate starting something I can't finish... πŸ˜‰

    @moursund β€” great set, how long were you working on it? Any advice to collectors β€œjust starting out” on a Barber dime set? Any surprises along the way?

    Nice set. I completed a set sometime in the early '90's. Took me 10 years to assemble it. The 1900-O was the toughest one to find. Sold my set in '97 to buy wife and me an airbed.Can't say I made money by selling but don't think I lost money either. That set was a lot of fun.

    I used to work with a collector who had completed a Whitman tri-fold Barber Dime album. Including the 1894-S. James G. Johnson. Check the pedigrees on the circulated specimens.

    Congrats on your complete set! Barber Dimes are definitely a fun set to collect. Some of the semi-keys definitely are pretty tough in the grade you have specified in problem-free condition.

    Did this a while back, but I agree, a Barber quarter collection is a steep climb. So, I chickened out and am working on Barber halves.

    You've put together a nice set! Any thoughts about taking it to the next level with VF coins? It's a shame the 1895-O is so disproportionately expensive.

    Very nice set! That's a fun set to put together I did mine in G to VG coins and If I remember correctly I sold it off around 2014. I used the proceeds wisely I think, and I've never regretted not having the set. To me the fun is in the putting together so I don't really miss 'em when they're gone.
