1902 Barber Dime

Since I havnt been out in the woods with no luck on mushrooms, I have been out metal detecting. I was doing a happy dance because I found a 1902 Barber Dime in great shape for being 107 years old. Can you tell me what was happing in 1902, when this coin fall to the ground?? Take a peek at the pictures:

Cool find Ted.
I'm curious tho' as to how it became known as a "Barber" Dime.

As to what was happening and how the dime got there....? That's easy!

A Michigan Wolverine fan lost it out his shirt pocket when he jumped up after finding out Michigan won the First Ever Rose Bowl game!

You don't know Charlie on the board, but he is an original member. He doesn't get online much anymore due to health. But I bet that dime came from his father or maybe uncle, or grandad.
Being a Die hard Michigan Fan is in his linage! LOL

Re: 1902 Barber Dime

Frank I bet you'er right!!! I found the coin in a old old park!! I bet he did jump and lost the dime when he heard of the Win. That's a great story and the story I'm going to tell about the coin!!!. Very Good Frank. That was great research about the 1902 First Rose Bowl game. I'll go with it.

The Coin was named "Barber Dime" because it was designed by Mr. Charles E. Barber, Cheif engraver of the mint, who also designed the 25 and 50-cents pieces. His inital B is usally at the truncation of the neck. Cool find and again thanks Frank.

For me when I find something old, It's all about the history at the time it was made and the wondering about the people whos hands have touched it.

That is excellent. I'm with you - wonder about all the hands it passed through or the history behind something when you find it. Very cool to think about.
