Description & Analysis

San Francisco's output of dimes fell to half the number achieved in 1905, but this year's mintage is more typical for the series.

Well struck, with pleasing luster, Mint State 1906-S dimes are scarce and highly sought. Gems are genuinely rare.

The Flynn book lists and illustrates a couple of repunched date varieties, but these are quite minor.
