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.

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.
