    Midgrade 1916-D Dime
    Deeply Toned VF35

    1916-D 10C VF35 PCGS. The New York Subway Hoard, amassed by New York City dealer George Shaw and his brother-in-law Morris Moscow (who worked for the New York Transit Authority in the 1940s to 1960s), included numerous key-date coins. Among them were 241 1916-D dimes, a total that apparently surpassed most other dates in the hoard. Numismatist Jim Reardon, chief coin buyer for Littleton Coin Company, which acquired the hoard in the early to mid-1990s, says it was "apparently the largest group of 1916-D ... Mercury dimes to hit the market in one transaction."
    We cannot say that the present offering pedigrees to the New York Subway Hoard. Unlike most of the examples in that accumulation, this one only spent a slight amount of time in circulation. This piece has moderate rub over the high points and each side is covered with charcoal-gray patina. A few light field marks are consistent with the grade.(Registry values: N1793) (NGC ID# 23GY, PCGS# 4906)

    Weight: 2.49 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
