Description & Analysis

Though World War I ended in 1918, the economic conditions it created lingered into 1919, and this pushed the mintage of dimes at Philadelphia to a very high level. The Mint Director's Report noted that some this huge production utilized 521 obverse dies and 343 reverse dies.

This issue is common in worn condition, and Mint State examples are also quite plentiful. There are plenty of certified gems, but, as with the coin illustrated, these can display heavy die erosion and loss of shallow details. Fortunately, the pool of nice examples is large enough that a discriminating collector can hold out for a sharp coin.

The 1919(P) dime was bereft of collectable varieties until quite recently, when the discovery of a dramatically doubled obverse die was announced. Evidently quite rare, it eluded detection for many years.
