    1916-D Mercury Dime, MS63 Full Bands
    CAC-Approved Series Key

    1916-D 10C MS63 Full Bands NGC. The 1916-D Mercury dime represents the first year of this popular series. Coinage began late in the year, but had to be halted in November, when an urgent need for quarters demanded all the resources of the Denver Mint. As a result, the 1916-D claims a series-low mintage of 264,000 pieces. The issue was saved to a certain extent by the general public, for its novelty value, but few examples in non-numismatic hands have survived unscathed over the years. Today, the 1916-D is the acknowledged key to the Mercury dime series. This impressive Select specimen exhibits well-detailed design elements, with Full Bands definition on the fasces. The lightly marked surfaces radiate vibrant mint luster and overall eye appeal is outstanding.(Registry values: N4719)
