Expert Comments

Jaime Hernandez: This is the first year in which the Proof Roosevelt Dime was struck. It is one of the more difficult dates to acquire in high proof grades. In Grades of PR60-66 they are fairly easy to obtain. In Grade PR67 and higher they become hard to find. In PR68 they are very scarce with about two dozen examples known with none being finer.
