    Fabulous First-Year 1916-S Dime
    MS67 Full Bands

    1916-S 10C MS67 Full Bands PCGS. Like many first-year issues across the history of U.S. numismatics, the 1916-S Mercury dime had its share of striking difficulties. As recounted by David Lange: "An overall weakness of strike in the central portions of both obverse and reverse characterizes this issue." While the present Superb Gem shows a measure of softness on the diagonal line below the bands, the bands themselves are sharp. Partial yellow-green toning gives way to bright silver luster. Population: 17 in 67 Full Bands, 0 finer (6/10).
