Description & Analysis

With the economic recession that set in during 1947, the supply of dimes on hand was sufficient to reduce mintages during 1949. Thus, 1949(P) dimes had the second lowest mintage for this series among Philadelphia Mint issues.

Collector enthusiasm lagged a bit, too, as the coin market shared in the post-war slump, yet 1949(P) are certainly not scarce in Mint State. There are plenty of coins certified through MS 67. Many of this issue, however, were struck from very worn dies, and Full Torch specimens are very elusive.
