CONECA (pronounced: CŌ´NECA) is a national numismatic organization devoted to the education of error and variety coin collectors. CONECA focuses on many error and variety specialties, including doubled dies, Repunched mintmarks, multiple errors, clips, double strikes, off-metals and off-centers—just to name a few. In addition to its website, CONECA publishes an educational journal, The Errorscope, which is printed and mailed to members bimonthly. CONECA offers a lending library, examination, listing and attribution services; it holds annual meetings at major conventions (referred to as Errorama) around the country.

CONECA was formed through a merger of CONE and NECA in early 1983. To learn more about the fascinating HISTORY OF THE ERROR HOBBY and THE HISTORY OF CONECA, we encourage you to visit us our main site Here

      I look at the mint mark and can see what your questionable area is. I also look around the coin to see if there is any additional potential machine doubling on the coin. This is a well worn coin, so at best this is all a best guess for me.

      I look at photo number 3, showing the mint mark area magnified, and I look at the left ribbon, where it is bent at a 45-degree angle. I THINK I see additional MD there as well. It looks like the die lifted upwards and in the West/Northwest direction. I'd take a look around the coin to see if any additional MD shows in that general direction.

      Variety Vista and the Master Files doesn't list Barber Dimes - that I could find.

      NGC - https://www.ngccoin.com/coin-varieti...dimes-vscid-1/
      Doesn't list a 1906 O/O. BUT that means they don't attribute it, it does not mean it doesn't exist.

      PCGS - http://www.pcgs.com/prices/priceguid...le=barber+dime
      is the same - Doesn't list a 1906 O/O. BUT that means they don't attribute it, it does not mean it doesn't exist.

      BUT NGC here

      In the analysis page says;
      A small number of MPD and RPM varieties is known for 1906-O dimes. One of these combines both categories and is a premium item.

      But offers no photos of an O/O example.

      Let's say IF it was an O/O,
      If you took the same O,
      superimposed it to line up with the weaker O to the far right side, would the weaker O in the center line up?
      I placed a sticky-note on the screen so the top of the sticky cut the "O" in half horizontally.
      As best I could, I drew the stronger "O"
      Pick up the sticky and move it over to the weaker "O", making sure you line up the drawing to the weaker "O" on the far right side.
      Basically taking a drawing of the Good "O" and placing it where the weaker "O" could be. If the drawing is really critical/accurate and the weaker "O" lines up at the far right, and also matches in the center, it could very well be an RPM.

      The photos are clear, but may not be magnified enough for me to make out whether the paper trick is an exact match.

          I personally don't attribute other people's coins, but there are a few that do.
          Depending on your location and personal choices, you can contact a few different individuals.
          The fee for these guys is pretty cheap.

          CONECA has a list of attributors here. There should be some one listed with an email address. I highly suggest emailing them to see their schedule and average amount of time for the attribution to be turned around.
          http://conecaonline.org/content/coneca_attributers.html

          John Wexler resides on the east coast and does attributions as well. I am not sure of the duration in attribution services for John. His website with the examination process is here:
          http://www.doubleddie.com/402401.html

          Another option is to take the coin to a local show and see if a CONECA rep is available to look the coin over. Several dealers may also examine the coin for free.
          State Reps are listed here;
          http://conecaonline.org/content/staterep.html

          I do not know your interest in the Barber dimes whether you collect barber dimes or, if it is simply looking for varieties/errors on coins you may acquire. Most coin shows have a supplies dealer that might carry a book on the barber dimes which may list this particular year and have photos and markers where you can self attribute the coin.

          Add in the fact that there are many visitors and members here who may be able to assist as well. Its just a matter of time before they reply.

          I hope the information helps.
