Description

1938 Mercury Dime
Spectacular MS68 Full Bands

1938 10C MS68 Full Bands PCGS. The 1938 dime mintage from the Philadelphia Mint (22,190,000 pieces) decreased from the extremely large coinage of the previous three years. David Lange explains this: "The recession which had set in during the latter part of 1937 slowed the nation's economy throughout 1938. This fact is reflected in lower production figures for all five denominations."

The MS68 specimen offered here displays strong luster emanating from immaculately preserved surfaces. Hints of occasional olive-green color are visible under magnification, and all of the design elements are well impressed. In addition to the full middle bands, the diagonal ones are bold as well. Population: 10 in 68 Full Bands, 0 finer (1/13).
Ex: Summer FUN Signature (Heritage, 7/2007), lot 607.(Registry values: N991) (NGC ID# 5C9Y, PCGS# 5011)

Another major house refused the work stating it was too unique for the artist. Heritage saw that as an advantage!
