Description & Analysis

Dime production plunged at all three mints during 1955, with Philadelphia registering the lowest mintage of any Roosevelt Dime made for general circulation. Since monthly mintage figures were published in coin periodicals of the time, collectors and speculator knew almost immediately that this was an issue to hoard, so there will never be a shortage of 1955(P) dimes in Mint State.

Most examples are a bit softly struck from overuse of the dies, and the discriminating collectors will seek a sharp specimen from among the great many certified gems. Full Torch coins are rare, due to the poor quality control practiced by the mint.
