Extensive Collection of Dime Varieties to be Sold by GreatCollections
Includes many finest known examples; all unreserved.


October 23, 2015.  Irvine, Calif. – GreatCollections presents a special offering of finest known and tied-for-finest PCGS die varieties of Roosevelt Dimes.  Over 20 different Doubled Dies and Repunched Mintmarks are included in the unreserved auction, with bidding to end on Sunday, November 1st.

The Roosevelt Dime series is the single longest running circulating coin series without any design change in U.S. history.  Next year will mark the 70th anniversary of the first year of issue.

"Many of these varieties rarely turn up in auction and it’s a great opportunity for the collector to obtain these in high grade," said Ian Russell, Owner/Founder of GreatCollections.  "It will likely be quite sometime before all of these are offered again like this in a single day of auctions!"
