Ron Guth: The 1906 Dime is one of the most plentiful and least expensive dates in the entire, thus it is a great choice for a type collection.  The mintage was just shy of 20 million coins, which represents the third largest mintage among Barber Dimes.  Collectors have the oppportunity to choose between hundreds of certified Mint State examples, usually in MS64, but also in large quantities of MS63 and MS65 examples.  The very best coins are MS66 and better, with a small handful of MS67's to entice the condition-conscious buyer.  The strike quality of this date is generally quite good, but the odd weakly-struck example appears occasionally.  Those with strong strikes will show full vein details in the leaf at bottom left reverse.
