Description & Analysis

The production of dimes at New Orleans rose only modestly from the previous year, as the country was still gripped by economic depression.

This issue typically is available in the lower circulated grades, but anything Very Fine or higher is quite scarce and eagerly sought. Mint State survivors are few, though the NGC Census suggests that a higher than expected percentage are gems.

Though not as poorly struck as some O-Mint coins, fully struck examples are the exception. The piece illustrated, for example, has an incompletely formed date.
