Description & Analysis

Dimes of the early 1960s were routinely hoarded by the BU roll and bag, but many of these were moved frequently between owners until attaining enough value as singles to merit grading and encapsulation. The result is a very common issue that may be a bit tough to locate in MS 67, though there seems to be a higher than usual percentage of Full Torch examples for a Philadelphia dime. Some pieces may be semi-prooflike, since the mint used dies that were not no longer fit for proof coinage to strike currency pieces.
