Description & Analysis

Denver coined roughly the half the number of dimes it had in 1918, and circulated examples of the 1919-D dime are fairly scarce above the grade of Very Good. Mint State pieces are likewise elusive, with gems being rare. Those having Full Bands are especially difficult to find. Peripheral weakness and eroded dies are the rule for most 1919-D dimes. Also common, as with all D-Mint coins from this period, are obvious die cracks.

Some of these technical problems may be explained by the large numbers of coins produced per die at the Denver Mint. Records show that it struck an average of 196,776 dimes per obverse die and 264,094 per reverse. Of course, some reverse dies remained usable from the previous year, and the figures above are per the number of new dies shipped to Denver, so the actual per-die total for reverses may have been lower.

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.
