Description & Analysis

In a reaction to the million+ dimes coined at San Francisco the previous year, the production of 1896-S dimes fell to just half that figure. Examples are scarce in all grades, though there appears to be enough Mint State survivors to supply advanced collectors. Most are quite well struck, and a few of these are prooflike, a not unusual occurrence at the San Francisco Mint during the 1890s.
