Expert Comments

Ron Guth: The 1947 Dime is very common in all grades up to, and including, MS-66.  MS-67 examples are scarce but can be found for a price.  None have been graded finer by PCGS (as of August 2011). 

Full Band (or Full Torch) examples are much scarcer and they follow the same grade distribution as the non-Full Band examples.  The finest FB exampl;e certified by PCGS is a single MS67+FB.
