Description & Analysis

The San Francisco Mint struck more dimes this year than in any other since 1918. It was also the first coinage of dimes there since early in 1931.

Though 1935-S dimes are fairly available in all grades through MS-66, only a small percentage possess Full Bands. The Census data is skewed toward such pieces, because they are more likely to be submitted in search of the coveted FB designation. In reality, most examples, though pleasingly lustrous, are weak at their centers.

The Wexler/Flynn book on Mercury dimes lists three repunched mintmark varieties, but two of these are fairly minor.

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.
