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.
Roll of 50 XF/AU, Random Dates As They Come
Blazing mint luster with a whisper of golden toning. The entire coin is sharply struck including the central bands on the reverse. None have graded numerically finer at PCGS.
CAC. Shimmering mint luster with a light golden hue and virtually perfect surfaces. Fantastic eye appeal and tied for the finest graded at PCGS.
Intense blazing white luster and a great strike.
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 6 graded higher by NGC.
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 for the grade.
