Description & Analysis

Though overshadowed by its famed brother of the previous year, the 1917-D dime is nearly as scarce in Mint State and the higher circulated grades. Gems are very difficult to locate, and the majority of Mint State 1917-D dimes lack full bands.

This issue was coined with dies of the both the old and new obverse master hubs (see 1917 Philadelphia for descriptions). The Type of 1916 (T16) dimes are more common, with those of the new obverse being relatively scarce.

T16 dimes are usually seen with the tiny mintmark used for 1916-D dimes, while T17 pieces usually have the newer and slightly larger D introduced this year. Collectors have shown little interest in these two subtypes and mintmark styles, but an advanced collector of the series should seek at least the two obverse styles. Certification companies do not presently recognize these subtypes, due to such lack of collector interest.

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.
