1905-O Barber DIme- ?? Micro-O ??

My vote is YES!

I took a picture of 2 other O mint Barber dimes I have, and although the pic isn't perfect with them being in holders, I think you can clearly see the difference in the size of the O. My micro-O is in the middle.

Also included pics of a nice 1920 Merc, beautiful religious medal and Indians I found during yesterday's hunt. The 1875 is a better date and in pretty nice shape.

Please let me know if you agree/disagree with my claim of the micro-O.

HH all,

-- Jeff --




Nice hunt

I don't have an O mintmark Barber to compare, but it does look smaller than the D and S mintmarked Barbers I have. Also a nice merc. and the 1875 is in good shape. Great hunt.

Long time no posting - I have not been out detecting for 3-4 years but it was fun to meet you years ago when we came back east.
I think your phone number is still in my phone - LOL
I guess we left a few coins for you to find.
I will be getting out this spring and I will post if I find anything good.

A lot of these coins were found in Jeff-n-Mass hunted out park in Fall River. On the bottom side of that pavilion with the graffiti. I'm glad that old woman Jeff-in-Mass warned us about was not around. It was fun times back then.
