    Extraordinary 1945-S Dime, MS68 Full Bands

    1945-S 10C MS68 Full Bands PCGS. CAC. The 1945-S dime, with a mintage approaching 42 million pieces, is a fairly common issue through the Premium Gem level. Fully struck examples are another matter, however. Indeed, David Lange (1993) says: "Flat, partial or split bands are the norm for this date... ."
    The devices are fully struck throughout, including Full Bands. Soft violet toning dominates the obverse, accented with a swath of deep forest-green and lavender on the upper left border. Medium intensity multicolored toning runs across the reverse. Radiant luster emanates from both sides, each of which is impeccably preserved. It is difficult to imagine encountering a coin with the technical quality and aesthetic appeal possessed by this majestic piece. Population: 3 in 68 Full Bands, 0 finer (3/10).(Registry values: N1793)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 23KG, PCGS# 5061)

    Weight: 2.49 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
