Is this a meaningful issue?
I am aware of the 3 positions known for the "5" on the 1895-O Barber Dime relative to the Bust:
Today, I looked at 5 of these coins and noted 2 had the 5 touching, 3 were near, and 0 in the Far position.
I don't know which, if any are rare.
The interesting point (at least to me) is that I pulled out 3 1894-O Barber Dimes and looked at the date position. I am totally unaware of any varieties here. SURPRISE! 2 coins had the "4" touching the Bust, and 1 coin had the "4" in the near position.
Is anyone aware of the variety in date placement? And is it rare?
IS IT MEANINGFUL?
