Description & Analysis

Like the dimes dated 1898-S and 1899-S, significant numbers of this issue have been recovered in lightly worn condition from The Philippines. Such pieces circulated there for just a few years before a new coinage exclusively for the islands debuted in 1903. In fact, the spike in dime mintage at San Francisco this year probably resulted from the Philippine demand, and 1900-S dimes, quarters and halves are the most abundant issues retrieved from the Far East.

The typical survivor displays XF or AU details but is either darkly toned or cleaned with varying degrees of skill. Since so many of these survivors are problem coins, they are not included in the certified Census.

Examples in the lower grades of Mint State are more plentiful than they would be, were it not for the repatriated Philippine pieces. Gems, however, are extremely rare for 1900-S. On the positive side, the strike and luster of this issue are generally excellent.

A misplaced date variety, along with several repunched dates, are known for this issue, but these have attracted little interest from collectors.

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.
