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.
Solid detail with pleasing light gray surfaces. The 'key' date to this popular series.
CAC. A gem for the grade with strong detail and nice problem-free dove-gray surfaces.
CAC. Brilliant satiny white luster blends with soft violet and gold hues. A touch of green tint clings to the lower periphery on the reverse. The strike is sharp and distinct and the separation in the bands is unquestionable. An outstanding Gem example of this popular rarity!

Mostly white and a sharp strike with a sprinkle of toning.
