Description & Analysis

This issue enjoyed a fairly high mintage, as well as a high survival rate in Mint State. It is common in all grades through MS 65, and even Full Bands example are plentiful. This should not make collectors careless in selecting a coin for their collections. Instead, they should be picky about finding a 1927(P) dime that displays a complete strike from fresh dies.
