Description & Analysis

This is a common issue across all grades, and even gem pieces are fairly plentiful for a vintage series. Typically, 1909(P) dimes are well struck and have excellent luster.

From this date forward, there would be no more repunched or misplaced date varieties. These were the result of dates being punched into individual working dies, but 1909's coinage utilized dies that had the year's date applied to the single obverse master die. The result was uniformity within each date, even if their continued to be some variance in style and position from one year to the next.

This method of die preparation became the standard for all existing designs created before 1907. The newer coin types, such as the Lincoln Cent and the Pratt/St. Gaudens gold issues, had dates sculpted into the artist's original models, and the updated numerals were engraved by hand into the master die each year.
