    Impressive 1920-S Dime, MS65 Full Bands

    1920-S 10C MS65 Full Bands NGC. The 1920-S is a scarce, semi-key issue in the Mercury dime series that is much more challenging than its mintage of 13.8 million pieces would suggest. It is also scarcer than several other, better-known issues. Only 18 pieces have been so graded by NGC with a mere four coins finer (10/07). This is a solid Gem example that has rich, frosted mint luster and an even overlay of rose and lilac toning. Some fadeaway is seen on the peripheral lettering, and the final digit of the date is weak as usual--described by Lange as "shy." An exceptionally pleasing and problem-free 1920-S dime.(Registry values: N4719)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 23HD, PCGS# 4933)

    Weight: 2.49 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
