Expert Comments

Ron Guth: The 1919-D Dime is common in circulated grades but it becomes one of the more elusive dates in Mint State.  Aprosimately 1/4 to 1/3 of the certified Mint State examples qualify as Full Bands, and these usually fetch a hefty premium over the non-Full Bands versions.  Interestingly, the 1919-D, 1927-D, and 1927-S are the only dates in the entire series which are not represented by a PCGS-graded MS67 or better example, and that applies to both non-Full Bands and Full Bands.  Considering the intense demand for this series, one can only contemplate what such a coin would bring if it ever appears on the market.
