Description & Analysis

Though production fell a bit from the previous year, Philadelphia still turned out a large number of dimes, and this issue is fairly plentiful through MS 66. In higher grades it becomes a bit elusive, as poor quality control was the norm for all three mints during the 1950s. Overly used dies lacking in detail were prevalent at the time, and this is reflected in the small percentage of pieces that achive FT status.
