Description & Analysis

A mintage this high was unimaginable just a few years earlier, and it reflects the optimism that existed during the New Deal period. 1936(P) dimes are plentiful in all grades through MS-67, and enough of them display Full Bands that this feature is not an obstacle to locating a suitable piece.

The great number of dies required for such production resulted in no fewer than eight known doubled-die obverse varieties. Most of these are rather slight, and all affect the date and motto IN GOD WE TRUST to one degree or another. The more desirable of these are certified by NGC under its VarietyPlus service.

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.
