Notes:
"1913-S...is one of those oddities of the Barber dime series. Because of its very low mintage this coin should be rare or at least very scarce. However, being late in the series a substantial number were saved, accounting for its R2 rating. But don't expect to find this coin easily - it enjoys very strong demand in all grades.

Both coins come nice as evidenced by their high pop in MS 66 and above."1

The finest Uncirculated examples graded by PCGS are 2 MS-67's.
