These dimes are part of an exclusive group known as the "1894-S Barber Dimes," minted in San Francisco. 

Only 24 of these dimes were ever minted, and today, it is believed that only nine have survived. 

The origins of their rarity are shrouded in mystery, with various theories suggesting they were struck as gifts for notable individuals or as a special request by the mint's superintendent. 

The lone bicentennial quarter in this prestigious group marks a significant moment in American history.
