Description & Analysis

Proof set sales dropped about 30% from those of 1957, reflecting unease among collectors and speculators over 1957's alarmingly high production. The concern was short-lived, and the 1958 figure would be the last one to fall shy of a million sets for many years to come.

There is no shortage of gem proof 1958 dimes, and this issue is common through PF 69. Cameo examples, while comprising a small percentage of the overall total, are available enough to be readily collectable. Ultra Cameo proofs are scarce and highly sought.

A single doubled-die obverse variety is noted, but this is too minor to generate any excitement.
