Description & Analysis

This issue is plentiful in Mint State through the grade of MS 67, but FT examples are a small minority of the total number of survivors. The typical 1947-S dime is softly struck from heavily worn and blurry dies. Such dies were often repolished to remove their erosion lines, and this resulted in prooflike coins having very shallow or partially effaced features.

A nice DDR variety is known, but the blurriness of many 1947-S dimes may make this difficult to discern. More popular are the several RPMs, which are all of the Trumpet-Tail S.
