Description & Analysis

The Philadelphia Mint churned out more dimes in 1887 than in any year since 1876, and the 1887(P) issue is common in all grades through MS 66. It is thus to be found in many a high grade type collection.

The usual minor repunched and misplaced dates that seem to be so prevalent for dimes of this type may be found, but these are of interest solely to specialists.
