What this coin looks like (obverse, reverse, mint mark location, special features, etc.):
The 1893 silver Barber Dime had a major Overdate error. The 1893 date was punched over an 1892 date. This resulted in a "3" noticeably being punched over the "2". The best way to identify this is to notice parts or blobs from the "2" seen within the "3" as depicted by the arrows in the example image of the coin above.
