Description & Analysis

Denver coined nearly twice the number of dimes it had in 1919, so this issue is fairly plentiful in grades through Very Fine. Mint State coins are not common, but enough are available to satisfy most collectors. True gems are quite rare, especially with Full Bands.

Most 1920-D dimes reveal some weakness of strike, and worn dies are also a common sight. Die cracks are especially prevalent with this issue, though they are almost endemic to all denominations of Denver Mint coins from the late 1910s through the mid 1920s. As with all 1920-dated dimes, the final numeral of the date is often flat or weak near the border.

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.
