Impressive 1918-D Dime, MS65 Full Bands

1918-D 10C MS65 Full Bands PCGS. Ex: William Dominick Collection. This issue's ample mintage of over 22 million pieces, combined with the strains of wartime production, makes the 1918-D dime one of the most poorly produced Mercury issues. In his The Complete Guide to Mercury Dimes, Lange gives a grim assessment that " ... this date offers relatively few coins which will satisfy collectors."
At the MS65 Full Bands grade level, the 1918-D is the premier rarity among D-mint issues in this long-lived and widely collected series. This impressive and obviously important Gem is not only fully impressed over the all-important crossbands, but the peripheral devices are sharply detailed throughout. Both sides exhibit a warm, matte-like texture that is veiled in original pastel-gold patina. A smattering of olive-tan color is seen at the lower obverse border, and the surfaces are pleasingly preserved, even by the standards of the Gem designation. Population: 17 in 65 Full Bands, 2 finer (12/07).
From The Scheppman Collection, #4 PCGS Registry of Full Band Mercury Dimes.(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 23H6, PCGS# 4919)
