Description & Analysis

1919-S dimes are scarce in all grades VF and higher, though price guides don't reflect this fact below the Mint State level. Unworn examples are quite scarce in any grade, with gems being genuinely rare.

Most dimes of this issue were poorly struck from worn dies. The San Francisco Mint's frugality in its die usage is evident from the average numbers coined per die this year: Obverse, 342,884; Reverse, 287,580. With such extended die runs, it's not surprising that examples having Full Bands (FB) are so seldom found. The coin illustrated is thus a truly exceptional specimen.
