Description & Analysis

After a hiatus of two years, the San Francisco Mint resumed the production of dimes in 1923. The total mintage amounted to only 6.4 million coins, most of which entered circulation. Few seem to have been kept in Uncirculated condition, even fewer of which have emerged with Gem quality features.
