Description & Analysis

The low mintage of 1950-S dimes drew speculators to this issue from the outset, and it's likely that a few thousand rolls were saved. Common in average Mint State grades, enough high grade examples have been certified to meet collector demand. 1950-S dimes were quite poorly made, with most showing various degrees of die wear and light impressions. Therefore, this issue is quite scarce with Full Torch details.

At least two RPMs are known, one of them quite minor but the other bold enough to be collectable.
