Description & Analysis

The practice of saving new coins by the roll was well established by 1946, so there is no shortage of Mint State 1946-D dimes. These are plentiful through MS 67. Well struck examples displaying Full Torch (FT) details are more plentiful than for 1946 dimes of the other two mints. Collectors should strive, however, to obtain pieces struck from fresh dies that are sharp in all details, not just the torch bands.

Kevin Flynn's book on the Roosevelt Dime series illustrates two DDO varieties, but of greater general interest are the numerous RPMs known for this issue. The best 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.
