Amazing Proof-69 1940 Mercury Dime

1940 10C PR69 NGC. Mintages of proof dimes from 1936 to 1942 gradually increased from 4,130 coins in 1936 to 11,827 coins in 1940, to 22,329 coins in 1942. In fact, the total mintage of proofs from 1936 to 1940 (39,762), was nearly the same as the total in 1941 and 1942 (38,886). The obverse displays rich, rainbow peripheral iridescence that is undoubtedly album toning. The balance of the surfaces exhibit a blanket of silver-white patina, through which intense reflectivity shines at all angles. A lovely and conditionally rare coin for the collector who values originality as well as technical quality. This is the single finest Proof 1940 Dime thus far certified by both services combined (11/04).(#5075) (Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 27DL, PCGS# 5075)
