Description & Analysis

This issue had the largest mintage among silver Roosevelt Dimes by a very substantial margin. Its great production, however, requires some explanation. To combat the hoarding of coins by "collectors," which Congress and the Mint incorrectly blamed for the nation's coin shortage, a freeze of the 1964 date was authorized that same year. Thus, 1964-D dimes were coined as late as 1966! In fact, only just over a third of all 1964-D dimes were actually coined during 1964.

Extremely common in average Mint State grades, and 1964-D are only slightly scarce in the higher grades through MS 67. A fair percentage may be found with FT details, though the NGC Census figures distort the availability of such coins, as FT examples are more likely to be submitted for grading than are lesser pieces.

1964-D dimes are rich in varieties, which is not surprising given the huge number of dies required for such a large production. This issue is a cherrypicker's delight, and there are still many bags and rolls that have not been checked for such pieces.

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.
