Description & Analysis

With the San Francisco no longer producing coins, the much larger Denver Mint made up the difference by stepping up its own production of dimes in 1956. While there are thousands of Mint State survivors, these are often times plagued by numerous small marks, probably as the result of having been trading by the bag quantity for years before becoming desirable as singles. Thus, the certified population drops off rapidly above MS 66. On the plus side, the generally sharper coins typical of Denver have provided a good percentage of FT specimens.

The two RPM varieties known for 1956-D dimes are of little interest beyond series specialists.

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.
