Description & Analysis

The economic depression that began in 1893 affected the production of dimes for 1894, which fell below what was typical for the era. As a result, this issue is moderately scarce across all grades and very scarce in Mint State. Gems are extremely elusive.

A small number of prooflike coins are noted for the 1894(P) dime, these likely the products of retired proof dies.

This issue is generally well struck, and the only real deterrent to finding a nice examples is the limited number of survivors overall.
