Description & Analysis

This issue enjoyed the highest mintage of Roosevelt Dimes from San Francisco, and it is plentiful across all grades through MS 67. Full Torch examples comprise a higher percentage than usual for S-Mint dimes and are scarce, but not truly rare.

Of the several RPMs known for 1952-S dimes, one of them is dramatic enough that it has attracted broad collector interest.
