    1935-S Dime, MS68 Full Bands
    The Sole Finest Known
    An Unparalleled Registry Coin

    1935-S 10C MS68 Full Bands PCGS Secure. As specialists of this series well know, the 1935-S Mercury dime is plentiful in grades through MS67 Full Bands, and Registry Set collectors compete for a handful of Plus-designated Superb Gems. However, it is undoubtedly the dream of many specialists to own the sole 1935-S dime certified finer than that level with Full Bands -- this MS68 coin. It has only one previous auction appearance, eight years ago, when it garnered $19,550 -- the uncontested auction record for the issue. This magnificent coin's preservation is matched by another MS68 PCGS coin, but that piece lacks Full Bands definition. This example is needle-sharp and luminous, showcasing virtually flawless surfaces. A trace of ice-blue and pink-champagne toning graces each side. The finest-known 1935-S Mercury dime will require decisive bidding to acquire, and it may just break its own auction record. Once this coin crosses the auction block, it may not be available again for many more years.
