Description & Analysis

The Philadelphia Mint's delivery of dimes dipped to 19.4 million pieces in 1928, a total that is second lowest for the entire decade after only the 1921. Nevertheless, this issue is sufficiently available through the MS 65 Full Bands level to satisfy less demanding collectors. In Superb Gem grades, however, the 1928 is rare to nonexistent.
