    1945 Dime, MS64 Full Bands
    Key Strike Rarity in the Series

    1945 10C MS64 Full Bands PCGS. In the mid-1970s Harold Kritzman discovered fully split bands were the key to a fully struck Mercury dime. Then he quickly discovered that no one had any 1945-P dimes with split bands across the center of the fasces on the reverse. Word quickly spread and today the 1945-P is the key strike rarity in the series, even though more than 159 million pieces were struck. This is an all-brilliant example with strong separation evident on the central bands. Population: 45 in 64 (1 in 64+) Full Bands, 60 finer (4/19).(Registry values: N1793)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 23KE, PCGS# 5057)

    Weight: 2.49 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
