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.
Lustrous silver-white surfaces and sharp detail including the bands. The 'key' date in this popular series.
CAC. Solid detail and pleasing natural coin-gray surfaces.
Strong detail and attractive problem-free surfaces.
Sharply struck with very close to full band detail. The surfaces are exceptionally nice with no significant marks and vibrant white luster.
CAC. Rich satiny luster with a champagne iridescence. The strike is very sharp including the horizontal bands which are very nearly full. A lovely example of this rare date with minimal marks and strong eye appeal!
A beautiful example of this rare date with a sharp strike and choice surfaces that show vibrant golden-white luster and no significant marks.
Very strong detail for the grade with pleasing medium gray surfaces.
Thick white satiny surfaces with a light golden blend and a sharp strike.
Satiny white luster and a sharp strike with excellent eye appeal. A scarce date that is particularly elusive with Full Bands. Only a single 65+ and a single 66 coin have graded finer at NGC.
A beautiful example of this better date with blast white luster and a strong strike. Interesting die breaks on the obverse at 6 o'clock from the rim to the bust and at 9 o'clock from the rim to Liberty's nose.
CAC. Very attractive with a satiny white base and iridescent peripheral toning.
Rich satiny white surfaces with a touch of russet at the obverse rim. Nearly mark-free with wonderful eye appeal.
Well struck and a near-Gem with speckles of gray-gold toning over lustrous surfaces.
CAC. Sharply struck with lustrous surfaces that have a light golden-tan hue. A better date that is particularly tough to find with full band detail.
CAC. Super quality with satiny white luster and a hint of gold hue. Beautiful surfaces are nearly pristine.
Satiny white surfaces that have a faint golden hue. A tough date to find with full band detail!
Well struck and nearly mark-free with silver-white surfaces.
