Description & Analysis

This issue's mintage of a million+ pieces was significantly higher than for its cousins from Philadelphia and New Orleans. The likely explanation is that the San Francisco Mint produced no dimes for circulation at all the previous year.

While worn examples are not rare, this issue does become quite elusive in higher grades. Gems are extremely rare and result in tremendous bidder competition. As is true of most San Francisco Mint coins from this decade, examples having semi-prooflike fields are known.

A nice repunched date variety may be found for this issue, but the scarcity and high prices for 1895-S dimes limits the premium that may be expected for any variety.

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.
