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.
A pleasing example of this rare date with solid detail and problem-free surfaces.
Just moderate wear with attractive light gray surfaces. The 'key' to the series with just 264,000 minted.
CAC. A thick silver-white luster patina, with a touch of toning, coats this nearly perfect coin. Two MS-67+ coins are all that have graded finer at PCGS.
Vibrant cream-white luster over beautiful surfaces that are devoid of marks. Super quality!
CAC. Well struck and nearly mark-free with silver-white surfaces.
Rich satiny luster with just a sprinkle of toning. The strike is very sharp and the surfaces are nearly mark-free.
Sharply struck with vibrant mint luster that shows pale lavender-gold toning. Very attractive.
The overall strike is extremely sharp including the reverse bands which are split and rounded! The surfaces are nearly flawless with a flashy white core that displays light russet toning. One of the 'keys' to this popular series.
CAC. A wonderfully original Premium Gem with a core of rich satiny white luster accented by light russet toning. Super quality and strong eye appeal!
CAC. Sharply struck with beautiful satiny white surfaces that are virtually flawless. A tiny touch of gold at the rim attests to the originality of this outstanding semi-key date Mercury Dime.
Rich satiny luster and a great strike with no significant marks.
Sharply struck with flashy brilliant surfaces that display a touch of golden toning.
CAC. Well struck and very flashy with blast white luster, accented by a trace of toning that is primarily at the periphery. Outstanding for the grade!
