Roosevelt Dime Values Spike with Full Bands

coinupdate.com / Michael Bugeja / January 3, 2014

In spring 2003, the top two holdering companies announced that they would be certifying well-struck Roosevelt dimes with “FT” (full torch, NGC) and “FB” (full bands, PCGS) designations. Both companies based their changes on collector and dealer requests.

This means that Roosevelt dimes in older holders may have undesignated full bands on their labels. That presents you with a keen opportunity to snare a rare coin at minimal cost.

How can you tell if your holder was made prior to 2003? There are several sites that feature changes in holder styles. I recommend this one for NGC and this one for PCGS.

The FT/FB designations do not apply to proof coins, by the way.

Look at the reverse. You will see upper and lower horizontal bands on the torch and three areas of vertical bands above and below each of the horizontal ones. Bands must be clear and unbroken.
