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.
