Description & Analysis

1939(P) dimes are plentiful across all grades through MS-67, yet they are frustratingly scarce with Full Bands. Since most coins are otherwise well struck, there was evidently something in the collar preparation of the die set that precluded metal from filling that portion of the die cavity on most pieces.

This date is rich in doubled-die obverse varieties, but all of them are too minor to gain much of a following.
