we near the end of the Barber dime series we see the mintages increase
(especially in the branch mints) as well as the total number of mint state
pieces. In 1911, for example, all three dates are only R1 for the first
time. The Denver mint has its highest dime production so far and the
1911-S is the third highest of the San Francisco dates.
All three coins come nice, with the
P&S mints being struck the best."1
