Description & Analysis

The 1930-S Mercury dime is a low mintage issue that was widely hoarded at the time of release. However, the 1.843 million pieces struck were not released until 1934-35, by which time the mintage was widely known and pieces were quickly snapped up by collectors and speculators, according to David Lange. While collectors should have little difficulty locating an Uncirculated survivor, they will seldom have the opportunity to acquire a high-grade Full Bands representative.
