How much is a 1908 Barber Dime worth?

This section is more of a layman's guide, for those new to collecting.

In Average Circulated (AC) condition it's worth around $3.00, one in certified mint state (MS+) condition could bring as much as $170 at auction. This price does not reference any standard coin grading scale. So when we say Average Circulated, we mean in a similar condition to other coins circulated in 1908, and mint state meaning it is certified MS+ by one of the top coin grading companies. *** [?].
