Description & Analysis

New Orleans coined enough dimes this year that heavily worn examples are only slightly scarce. Mid-grade (F-XF) survivors are quite elusive, especially ones that haven't been badly cleaned. Mint State pieces are also few in number, and a high percentage are poorly struck. The coin illustrated is exceptional in being quite sharp.

An extremely minor repunched date variety is known, but this carries no premium.
