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.
Clear date and mint mark.
CAC. Well detailed with pleasing silver-gray surfaces.
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. Shimmering mint luster with a light golden hue and virtually perfect surfaces. Tied for the finest graded at PCGS.
A Gem example of this better date with flashy mint luster that displays a faint champagne-gold hue.
