Description & Analysis

This is the most common Philadelphia Mint dime from the 1920s in all grades, and Mint State examples are fairly plentiful through grade MS 66 FB. Some of this great availability is due to the onset of the Great Depression late in 1929 which nearly curtailed retail activity. A portion of this issue's mintage remained in storage just long enough to attract the attention of collectors and speculators during the mid 1930s. In fact, the U. S. Treasury had a stock of 1929(P) dimes available at face value plus the cost of postage throughout that decade.
