Description & Analysis

Dime production at the Philadelphia Mint nearly doubled over the previous year, as the nationwide coin shortage became big news in 1963. Also announced that year was the Treasury Department's belief that silver coinage would be coming to an end shortly. This led to even greater hoarding of fresh USA coins by speculators, an activity that peaked the following year before the market in bags and rolls collapsed.

This issue is common in all grades through MS 67, and there seem to be enough FT examples certified to supply the demand from advanced collectors of the Roosevelt series. Some examples may be semi-prooflike on one or both sides from having been struck with retired proof dies, but these always seem to fall short of being sufficiently brilliant to earn a PL designation.

1963(P) dimes are rich in varieties, though most of these apply to the proof strikings. Still, there are a few desirable varieties for the currency pieces, as well.

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.
