Description & Analysis

Proof coins were offered in 1950 for the first time since being interrupted by World War II in 1942. Whereas previously collectors could order just those denominations they desired, from 1950 to the present day only complete, pre-packaged sets are sold by the U. S. Mint. The individual plastic sleeves of 1936-42 were still used, but these were stapled together and placed within a square, cardboard box that was then sealed with heavy paper tape.

An eight year suspension in the coining of proofs meant that the Philadelphia Mint had to relearn the process before perfecting it. As a consequence, this first emission of proof Roosevelt Dimes included many coins that were only semi-brilliant. Those struck from dies that were more fully polished may sometimes show a lack of low-relief details, as these were abraded from the dies, but this is not a big issue with 1950 proof dimes.

Gems of this issue have been certified in good numbers through PF 67, but examples displaying enough contrast on both sides to be certified as Cameo are very scarce and highly sought. Ultra Cameo proofs are extremely rare.

A very minor doubled-die reverse is noted for the sake of completeness.

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.
