Description & Analysis

1908 Philadelphia Mint dimes are common across all grades through MS 64, with even gems being plentiful enough to supply the needs of advanced collectors. Though some pieces exhibit signs of die erosion, most are well struck and have good to excellent luster.

With its large mintage the 1908(P) dime is rich in varieties. Numerous MPD and RPD obverses are known, several of them bold enough to be of general interest beyond series specialists. The U. S. Mint evidently took note of these many blundered dies, as it began applying the date to all master dies with 1909's coinage, ending these classes of varieties forever.
