1905 10C (Regular Strike) Barber Dime 

The 1905 Barber Dime, or Liberty Head Dime, is a coin from the United States Mint's Barber coinage series. These dimes feature a design by Charles E. Barber, the Chief Engraver of the United States Mint at the time.

Design:  The obverse (front) of the coin features a depiction of Liberty wearing a Phrygian cap, symbolizing freedom and liberty. The word "LIBERTY" is inscribed above her head, and the year of mintage is below. The reverse (back) of the coin features a wreath surrounding the denomination "ONE DIME" and the motto "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA."

Metal Content:  Barber Dimes, including the 1905 issue, are composed of 90% silver and 10% copper. They have a diameter of 17.9 millimeters and weigh 2.5 grams.

Mintage:  The Philadelphia Mint struck the most significant number of 1905 Barber Dimes, with millions minted. While not considered a scarce date, it's still essential to consider the mintage when evaluating its value.

Value:  The value of a 1905 Barber Dime depends largely on its condition (grade). Even in circulated condition, it typically holds a value above its silver content due to collector demand. Higher grades, such as uncirculated or mint state examples, can command higher premiums.

For a specific valuation of a 1905 Barber Dime, it's best to consult with a professional numismatist or refer to pricing guides and online resources that track current market values for coins of various conditions.
