Need another reason to get out and detect today? How about the 1894-S Barber Dime that just sold for $1.3M!
A Businessman in Utah just paid a whopping $1.32 million dollars for the Dime at auction last week. Apparently this dime was one of only 24 that were ever made. The proud new owner is a coin collector working to complete his collection of every coin minted from 1792 to present.
The coins were struck at the San Francisco Mint on June 9, 1894, the Professional Coin Grading Service said in a statement. The service certified the coin's condition and authenticity.

The dime once belonged to Jerry Buss, the late owner of the NBA's Los Angeles Lakers. It last went up for auction in 1988.
Another 1894-S dime sold in 2016 to an anonymous buyer for almost $2 million. Maybe there's one in that next hole your about to dig, or come out of a spill at the old farm house you've been eyeing? All we know is we'd sure love to see one of our customers find something as epic as a barber-s!!
