Most sites off search engine results all seem different or copy and pasted from another. Never any "full" lists

I'd take a RedBook and a lined piece of paper and write all of the key dates down manually. It wouldn't take too long, and you will begin to memorize them as you are studying the mintages and physically writing them down.

For key dates for any denomination,
look for pricing comparisons in the VF range in the Red Book.

Maybe also because there is no consensus on the meaning of the term?

What your asking is very broad, as some coins are conditional rarities , for example a 1934 S Peace dollar is reasonable in circulated grades but st$$pid in high grades. While the key dates are considered the 1928 and 1921.

Stop searching on the internet get the Red Book and make your own decision and list as to what is a key date.

In my opinion the 1996 W, 1982 no P, 2015 P reverse proof, and the 2015 W silver dimes should be added to the key dates for Roosevelt dimes.

I don't know how much I trust that list. In the Lincoln wheat series the 1909S is pretty much a key date also and in Peace dollars the 1921 and 1928 are the key dates.

@Slider23's list is arbitrary and superficial, lacking any reference to many established key dates.

Hfjacinto you are correct as the key dates for the Peace dollar should include the 1921 and 1928. I removed the other questionable Peace dollar key dates listed. I also added the 1909 S Lincoln Cent.

Chopped Ttiumpas, I added your recommendations for the Roosevelt dimes.

Before I posted the online list on CCF, I did make a couple of changes as I added the 1894 to Morgan, and the 1923 S to the Standing Liberty.

I am open to making any changes to get a better list.

One thing that I noticed from posting this from an online source, It is really difficult to put together a Key Date list without having collected the series as key dates sometimes are not just about mintage.
