Description

1925-S Dime, MS67 Full Bands
Magnificently Toned, Tied for Finest

1925-S 10C MS67 Full Bands PCGS. The branch mint issues of 1925 in the Mercury dime series both have similar mintages -- 5.1 million coins for the 1925-D versus 5.8 million pieces for the 1925-S. While both are scarce in the lower Mint State grades, the 1925-S edges out its sibling in rarity at the Gem Full Bands level.
This is an incredibly well-defined example of an issue that is generally poorly produced. The central crossbands are not only fully split, but well rounded from end to end. Only minimal die erosion shows on parts of the reverse. The satiny luster is unmarred throughout, and only the most trivial bagmark appears in the right reverse field. An area of die polish is noted to the left of Liberty's hair and forehead. A soft peripheral ring of golden-orange and cobalt-blue iridescence provides a fully original appearance. This piece is tied with three others as the finest examples at PCGS, with five coins of equal grade at NGC (6/12). There are none finer at either service.(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 5LX3, PCGS# 4953)
