Default Beautiful 1912-D Barber Dime!

Am heading out later today to detect a bit more, so will post full story tonite when back home. Found this beauty yesterday at a Sorority House near the U of M. Definitely "hazardous duty" with all the young college females coming and going!

Thanks Tom! I figure XF-AU for condition at least. Uh... the college cuties were keeping their social distance and might have charged serious "coin" for their pics!

Beautiful Barber. That coin didn't circulate much before being lost.

Thank you D4C! When I saw it in the dirt on my towel, I could see the shine so made sure I did NOT rub the coin, and carefully washed it by patting it and then wrapped it in tissue to stay safe.

Yep, glad I did. Silver is a soft metal and does scratch easily.
