Description & Analysis

The lack of any dime deliveries in 1932 and 1933, coupled with the worsening economic situation of the early 1930s, precluded the public from preserving many high quality 1931 examples. As such, this issue is understandably scarce at the high Mint State levels by Philadelphia Mint standards.
