Description and Analysis

Roosevelt Dimes
1964 10C PF

Description & Analysis

Proof set sales nearly reached the four million mark, as speculative interest in the new Kennedy Half Dollar led to numerous multi-set orders. 1964 has the highest number of certified PF 69 coins for the silver series, as well as the highest certified population of Cameo and Ultra Cameo pieces. The 1964 proof dime is thus an ideal candidate for the collector seeking a single type example of top quality.

Like the currency strikes of this date, the proof 1964 dimes may be found with two styles of date. That having a long tail to numeral 9 ending in a rounded point is more scarce than that having a short, blunt tail to the 9. In addition, a nice DDO variety is known.
