Description:
Gorgeous 1916-D Mercury Dime, MS67 Full Bands
Tied for Finest Certified
1916-D 10C MS67 Full Bands PCGS. CAC. Among regular issue U.S. 20th century coins, the 1916-D has a remarkably low mintage of only 264,000 pieces. Only a few other key date issues have similar or lower mintages, and all are rarities in high demand. The 1916-D Mercury dimes were all released in November 1916, with production halted so that a sudden request for quarters could be filled. The Treasury Department submitted an order late in the year for 4 million quarter dollars. The quarters struck at Denver were, of course, the older Barber-design coins, and that is the only denomination the Mint produced for the balance of the year.
Demand for the 1916-D Mercury dimes is partly due to the low mintage, and partly due to their status as first-year-of-issue type coins. Many type collectors seek only first-year coins, while others choose only key dates for their collections.
Four different reverse dies are known for the 1916-D dime coinage, and all four are illustrated in David Lange's The Complete Guide to Mercury Dimes. The upper left serif of the repunched mintmark is minutely notched, and matches Die 2 illustrated in Lange's reference.
Both sides of this coin are alive with mint frost that shimmers beneath rich orange-gold, olive, and blue-gray toning. Every feature is fully struck, and the all-important central bands are razor-sharp. The surfaces are smooth enough to suggest an even higher grade. This is only the third MS67 Full Bands PCGS example of the date to appear in any of our auctions, and the other two were presented in 2001 and 2003. The collector who has been waiting since 2001 or 2003 to acquire the finest PCGS-certified 1916-D dime must take full advantage of the present opportunity. Population: 6 in 67 Full Bands, 0 finer (4/10).
