Adolph A. Weinman designed the Mercury Dime which was minted from 1916 to 1945. Mercury Dimes were struck in Philadelphia, Denver, and San Francisco.
1916-D and the 1942/1 overdates are the most famous as well as the rarest and most expensive Mercury Dimes. But there still plenty of dates from this popular early series that can still be purchased in high grade for a very modest sum.
#128149: Unbelievably intense, blast white luster explodes off this incredibly high quality, first year Mercury Dime!
#204346: Full Bands. A collage of rainbow toning canvases a virtually mark-free surface. Only 9 grade higher at PCGS & 12 higher at NGC.
#201416: CAC approved. A splendid example for the grade and a difficult grade to find as most '16-D dimes are very low grade. This example has solid detail and nice original steel-gray surfaces.
#204742: From the first year of the series and the key to the set.
#204678: Crisp mint luster with a faint golden hue. The entire coin is very well struck including the all important bands! This is a quality example of this super popular 'key' date!
#204570: An attractive upper-end Extra Fine with sharp detail and even silver-gray surfaces.
#131451: Well detailed with nice steel-gray surfaces that display a hint of light blue and even very light remnants of luster.
#206371: CAC approved. The 'key' to the series with a mintage of just 264,000. Here's a very hard-to-find high grade circulated coin the has nice original color and surfaces and strong detail. Very pleasing and close to grading full Extra Fine!
