In 1908, production of Dimes at the Philadelphia Mint dropped nearly in half from the previous year, yet the mintage still remained over 10 million coins. Thus, the 1908 Dime is not the cheapest coin in the series, but it remains very affordable in most grades. Hundreds of Mint State examples exist, mostly in MS63 and MS64, with ample quantities in Gem and better conditions. The PCGS CoinFacts Condition Census consists entirely of MS66+ and better coins, topped off with a couple of MS67's. The 1908 Dime is almost always well-struck. Luster ranges from brilliant to soft and creamy.
