Description & Analysis

Collectors have recognized the 1927-D dime as a condition rarity for decades. While 1926-D, 1928-D and 1929-D dimes were available by the BU roll during the 1930s, this was never the case for 1927-D dimes, which seem to have entered circulation immediately. Even worn coins are less often seen than other Mercury Dimes of comparable mintage, and examples grading VF through AU are scarce.

When a Mint State 1927-D is found, it is likely to be weakly struck at both centers and peripheries. The example illustrated, while highly lustrous, shows signs of the die erosion in its fields that is also common to this issue. Gems are quite rare, and those having Full Bands are even more so.

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.
