1916-D Dime, AU53
Scarce in This Grade, Highly Sought After

1916-D 10C AU53 PCGS. Even though only 264,000 examples of the 1916-D Mercury dime were struck and many of them apparently circulated for decades, the few coins made were well-produced. Well-heeled collectors seek Mint State examples in the finest grades possible, usually with the Full Bands designation. Interestingly, PCGS has certified Full Bands examples even in circulated grades, down to the AU50 level. The issue is far and away the key to the Mercury dime series, and circulated examples between VF25 and AU53 or so are downright elusive. This lightly marked example spent little time in circulation. Each side is bright with just the lightest hint of golden toning.(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 23GY, PCGS# 4906)
