Notes:
"With the new millennium [here], these 1900 issues are in strong demand. In addition, the middle years of the Barber dime series were generally ignored. As a result, though there were 17 million P-mint coins made, only 0.01% of these have been certified MS to date. This coin will not be easy to find."1
