Description & Analysis

Despite having the second lowest mintage of Philadelphia Mint dimes from the 1920s, the 1928(P) issue is common in all circulated grades and through MS 64. Gems are slightly elusive, but they are sufficiently well struck on average to display Full Bands in many instances. Collectors should be reluctant to acquire coins that reveal die erosion or incomplete strikes.

Starting this year the dates of all Mercury Dimes included fully closed loops on numeral 9. This process had been initiated in 1926 with nearly closed loops, and it appears to have been a preference of Chief Engraver John R. Sinnock, who succeeded George T. Morgan in 1925.

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.
