Description and Analysis

Roosevelt Dimes
1946 D 10C MS

Description & Analysis

The practice of saving new coins by the roll was well established by 1946, so there is no shortage of Mint State 1946-D dimes. These are plentiful through MS 67. Well struck examples displaying Full Torch (FT) details are more plentiful than for 1946 dimes of the other two mints. Collectors should strive, however, to obtain pieces struck from fresh dies that are sharp in all details, not just the torch bands.

Kevin Flynn's book on the Roosevelt Dime series illustrates two DDO varieties, but of greater general interest are the numerous RPMs known for this issue. The best of these are certified by NGC under its VarietyPlus Service.
