Description & Analysis

The Philadelphia Mint's output of dimes continued its recovery from the low point of 1846. This date is moderately scarce in the higher circulated grades, though there are a fair number of Mint State coins. Gems, however, are quite elusive.

The sole variety of interest features a repunching of numerals 48, the earlier impression being west of the final one.
