Description & Analysis

A mintage of more than three million pieces was generous for the year 1893, yet it would come to look quite modest just a few years later. Despite the fact that numerous die pairs were required, no varieties have yet surfaced.

Lacking first-year-of-issue status, the survival of 1893(P) dimes in Mint State was a matter of chance. This date is certainly not rare, and a fair number of gems have been certified. Only a small handful are known in the upper grades.
