Why add this 1902-S Silver Barber Dime to your collection of American coinage?

In 1892, the U.S. Mint introduced a newly designed series of dime, quarter and half dollar denomination coins featuring a rendition of Lady Liberty created by the sixth Chief Engraver of the Mint, Charles E. Barber. Due to its small 17.91 mm diameter, the Barber Dime reverse differs from the quarter and half dollar, featuring an agriculturally themed wreath instead of a heraldic eagle. This dime, struck from 0.0723 Troy oz. of .900 fine silver, is one of the 2,070,000 produced at the Mint's San Francisco branch in 1902

Lady Liberty as Envisioned by Barber

The obverse features a right facing portrait of Lady Liberty, wearing a Phrygian cap with a headband bearing the inscription "LIBERTY" and an olive branch wreath. The image is encircled by the inscriptions "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "1902" and a beaded border.

The coin's denomination "ONE DIME" is centered on the reverse, surrounded by a wreath comprised of corn, wheat, maple and oak leaves, with San Francisco's Mint mark "S" below.
