Ron Guth: 1882 saw a spectacular rise in the mintage of Dimes.  In fact, the mintage of the 1882 Dimes was almost 163 times (yes, 163 times) that of 1881.  The result of this large mintage is a plethora of nice examples for today's collectors.  This is borne out in the PCGS Population Report (where hundreds of Mint State 1882 Dimes are reported) and the PCGS CoinFacts Condition Census (where the top ten 1882 Dimes are all MS67 or better).

Most 1882 Dimes have a frosty luster, though Prooflike examples also exist.  Strike quality is usually excellent.

Gerry Fortin, keeper of all things Seated Liberty Dimes, has identified twelve different die pairs used for this date.  This means that, on average, each die pair was responsible for striking 325,833 Dimes.
