    1916-D Dime, MS65 Full Bands
    Sharp and Conditionally Rare

    1916-D 10C MS65 Full Bands NGC. The 1916 Mint Director's Report proudly explains: "For the first time in the history of our coinage there are separate designs for each of the three denominations, and their beauty and quality, from a numismatic standpoint, have been highly praised by all having expert knowledge of such matters to whom they have been shown. The striking of these coins for general circulation will doubtless be well underway by the coming of the Christmas holiday season." Coins were delivered promptly, with the 264,000 D-mint representatives released in November. The 1916-D boasts far and away the smallest production total in the series, and examples are sought-after by both budding collectors and long-time series specialists.

    This Gem Full Bands example combines this long-recognized appeal with a degree of both strike and conditional rarity. The obverse portrait, as well as the the horizontal and diagonal fasces bands, showcase needle-sharp definition that mirrors the equally bold rendering of the peripheral legends. The surfaces are beautifully preserved with satiny champagne luster that yields faint splashes of russet and aquamarine. An exemplary representative in all respects. Census: 25 in 65 (1 in 65+) Full Bands, 7 finer (11/15).(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 23GY, PCGS# 4907)
