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.

Crisp white luster and virtually full bands.
Blazing mint luster with a whisper of golden toning. The entire coin is sharply struck including the central bands on the reverse.

A beautiful sharply struck Gem with booming white luster and rich satiny surfaces.
CAC. Amazingly vibrant and thick, frosty white luster, gives this plus designated Premium Gem fantastic eye appeal!
A pleasing, well struck example of this scarce date with light toning and crisp mint luster. Only 5 graded numerically higher by NGC.
A very tough date to find with full bands with a huge price jump to the next grade - MS-65. This example is very attractive with blast white luster and no significant marks. Outstanding for the grade and an excellent value.
CAC. A better early 'S' mint that is scarce in mint state and particularly difficult to find in Gem or better. This beautiful example is well struck with vibrant mint luster. The satiny surfaces are problem-free and brilliant with a very subtle golden hue. Outstanding quality!
Cream white luster with outstanding eye appeal.
An amazing example of this scarce date with booming white luster and remarkable mark-free surfaces. The strike is sharp including the bands which are full and rounded. None have graded finer at NGC or PCGS!
Extremely well struck with blazing mint luster and nearly flawless surfaces. An incredible 1921 dime with just 2 grading numerically finer at PCGS.
A pleasing problem-free example of this 'key' date.
Beautiful intense mint luster with attractive russet-gold toning. There are virtually no marks and the strike is razor sharp including the bands which look rounded and full to us, although NGC doesn't offer a Full Bands designation on the holder. Fantastic quality!
