Description & Analysis

The small number of dimes struck at San Francisco in 1892 called for stepped up production this year, and 1893-S is only slightly scarce in lower grades. At the upper circulated grades and in Mint State it becomes very elusive. Gems are quite rare, though there are enough certified for the most advanced collectors.

This issue is rich in varieties, though most are minor. Two each are known of repunched dates and repunched mintmarks. The only significant variety possesses both features, though the repunching of the date is too slight to note on the grading label. The mintmark, however, was first punched far to the east of normal and then corrected. Both mintmarks remain distinct, and this variety is highly sought.

NGC Price and Value Guides Disclaimer

Disclaimer: The prices listed in the various NGC Price and Value Guides are compiled from a number of independent, third party sources in the numismatic community which NGC believes to be reliable. Prices provided are averages, not specific prices for individual coins. Further, because these prices are only updated from time to time, they do not reflect short term pricing trends, which are quite common and are often quite dramatic, given the volatile nature of the collectible coin marketplace. This is especially true for rare coins, where there are fewer sales and greater variations in sale prices. For all of these reasons, the prices in these guides are designed to serve merely as one of many measures and factors that coin buyers and sellers can use in determining coin values. These prices are not intended, and should not be relied upon, to replace the due diligence and — when appropriate — expert consultation that coin buyers and sellers should undertake when entering into a coin transaction. As such, NGC disclaims all warranties, express or implied, with respect to the information contained in the NGC Guides. By using the NGC Guides, the user agrees that neither NGC nor any of its affiliates, shareholders, officers, employees or agents shall have any liability for any loss or damage of any kind, including without limitation any loss arising from reliance on the information contained in the Guides.
