Description & Analysis

1948-S dimes were widely hoarded at the time, and these rolls were mostly broken up during the 1970s-90s. They have furnished many gems through MS 67, though FT coins are distinctly in the minority.

While S-Mint Roosevelt Dimes of all dates 1946-55 often display bright, frosty luster, their peripheral details are frequently distorted or shallow from die erosion. The final numeral of the date is sometimes almost invisible, and this phenomenon is present to a lesser degree of Philadelphia and Denver Mint dimes, too.

There are over half a dozen RPMs known for 1948-S dimes, and the better of these will be attributed 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.
