Description & Analysis

With the onset of a post-war recession during 1947-48, mintages for all coins began to fall and would not start to rebound until 1950. Since collectors and speculators routinely saved hundreds of BU rolls at the time, there's no shortage of 1948(P) dimes through MS 66. It's significant, however, that the number of certified MS 67 examples is lower than for previous entries in this series. Due to poor quality control, FT coins are somewhat scarce.

A nice doubled-die reverse is known for the 1948(P) dime, and this is gaining in popularity.

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.
