Description & Analysis

1954-S dimes were widely hoarded at the time of issue, and gems are plentiful through MS 67. Only a small percentage of these merit the FT designation, due to the tendency of San Francisco to run its dies way too long until they suffered loss of detail.

A couple of RPM varieties are known for this issue, and one of these has a very dramatic spread between mintmark punchings.
