Description & Analysis

By 1935 the American economy was in recovery mode, and this is reflected in the high mintage of dimes at the Philadelphia Mint. In fact, this year's production was the second highest in the series to date, being edged out just barely by 1920(P) at 59 million.

Plentiful across all grades through MS-66 FB, this issue benefitted from the newly-popular practice of collectors to set aside fresh rolls of coins obtained from local banks. This tradition thrived for the next 30 years, until a sharp decline in the hobby in 1965 coincided with the replacement of silver with base metals in both dimes and quarters.

Mint State 1935(P) dimes vary highly in quality, but their sheer numbers make it possible to shop around and select only lustrous, fully struck examples.

Two doubled-die obverse are known, both of them quite distinctive in comparison to most such varieties in the Mercury Dime series.
