Description & Analysis

The nation entered 1923 in the midst of an economic recession, but conditions soon improved to the point that the existing stock of earlier-dated dimes was exhausted. By late spring the Philadelphia Mint had resumed dime coinage for the first time since early 1921, but only 5,380,000 dimes had been struck by the end of the Mint's fiscal year on June 30, 1923. The greater part of this issue's production occurred from July through December.

With a total mintage of more than 50 million pieces, it should not come as a surprise that 1923(P) dimes are common across all grades through MS 65. Most Mint State survivors have excellent luster and are reasonably well struck. Full Band examples are plentiful, though a close inspection reveals that some of these coins are weak at their peripheries. As always, collectors should seek pieces that are well struck throughout from fresh dies that are free of erosion lines and clash impressions.

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.
