Description & Analysis

The mintage figure for 1924-S dimes is unremarkable, and this issue is common in heavily worn condition. As with all S-Mint coins from the 1920s, it was widely hoarded after the introduction of inexpensive coin boards during the mid-1930s. Problem-free pieces grading VF and higher scarce, with a very low population of Mint State coins relative to other Mercury Dimes. Gems are exceedingly rare and seldom possess Full Bands.

The quality of the nation's coins reached a low point during the mid-1920s, as Congress cut budgets for all departments throughout that decade. Dies were used far too long, and it's likely that the set distance between dies was reduced a bit to extend their utility even further.
