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.
Flashy white luster and a great strike.
Pleasing light silver-gray with solid detail for the grade. The 'key' to this popular series.

A pleasing example of this scarce date with light silver-gray surfaces.
Flashy mint luster that's mostly white with a sprinkle of champagne-gold. The strike is very sharp, including the bands which are as close as you can get to 'Full'! A pleasing example of the 'key' to this popular series.
CAC. A 'key' date that was created when production was halted early to manufacture quarters instead and only 264,000 pieces were minted. This example illuminates with a soft amber glow that evolves into hints of violet-ruby accent along the periphery. Abrasions are minimal and nondescript with surfaces looking super clean for the grade. While the 'Full-Band' designation was not awarded, a clear separation is noticeable between the bands. A fantastic acquisition with only 5 non-Full Band coins grading finer at PCGS.
Well detailed with light silver-gray surfaces. A pleasing example of this always popular 'key' date.
Rich glowing luster and a sharp strike. Old 'green label' holder.
Milky-white luster and a sharp strike with nearly flawless surfaces.

CAC. Amazing quality with vibrant cream-white luster that has a touch of champagne-gold. The strike is needle-sharp and the surfaces are very close to perfection!

Crisp frosty luster with a bit of a glow.
Satiny white luster and a sharp strike.
Beautiful champagne-white luster and a sharp strike with nearly full band detail.
Satiny blast white surfaces display an overall super sharp strike. The eye appeal is fantastic. Tied for finest graded at PCGS.
