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.
CAC. Strong detail with very attractive silver-gray surfaces. A hard-to-find mid-grade example of this scarce date.
Well struck with satiny luster and rich russet toning.
Blazing mint luster with a whisper of golden toning. The entire coin is sharply struck including the central bands on the reverse.
A spectacular dime with fiery mint luster, a great strike and gorgeous light iridescent toning. A couple of very trivial marks away from perfection!
CAC. Blazing mint luster with a touch of toning and a great strike.
CAC. Shimmering mint luster with a light golden hue and virtually perfect surfaces. Tied for the finest graded at PCGS.
CAC. Well struck and pleasing with vibrant mint luster that is a very light champagne hue away from blast white. A tough date in Gem.
A pleasing, well struck example of this scarce date with light toning and crisp mint luster. Only 6 graded higher by NGC.
A better date in high grade and particularly difficult with full bands. This choice example exhibits vibrant luster with strong band definition. The surfaces are extremely pleasing and show delicate champagne-gold toning. Outstanding eye appeal.
