Description & Analysis

With the growing popularity of collecting USA coins, the mintage of proof dimes rose this year to the extent that approximately three dozen survivors are presently known.

A single die pair was employed. The obverse featured the Small Date style and is boldly doubled at the shield and Liberty's hemline. Of course, this variety component has no bearing on the value of proofs, but it does provide a good authentication pick-up point for any suspected proof that is too impaired to confirm by other means.
