Rare Full Bands Premium Gem 1945 Dime1945 10C MS66 Full Bands PCGS. Collectors have long tried to assemble sets of this popular series in Mint State with full central bands. By the mid-1970s, specialists were well aware that the seemingly common 1945 was in fact a major rarity with Full Bands. The Philadelphia Mint may have had a labor shortage in 1945 due to World War II, at the same time that the wartime economy was booming. The mints also had to strike substantial quantities of world coinage, further straining resources. Given these circumstances, it is understandable that the Philadelphia Mint wished to increase die life for 1945 dimes, and the nearly 160 million pieces struck were produced from dies spaced slightly too far apart. This lustrous Premium Gem has light yellow-gold toning, and both sides are essentially prooflike. The obverse border has a few glimpses of prooflike surface. Population: 13 in 66, 3 finer (11/06).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 23KE, PCGS# 5057)
