    1941 Mercury Dime, Unimprovable PR69
    Immaculate Preservation

    1941 10C PR69 NGC. A remarkable display of iridescent rainbow toning embraces the smoothly brilliant silver center on the obverse, while the reverse is less dramatically toned but equally pristine and attractive.

    As expected, the surfaces are fully struck and essentially flawless, befitting the MS69 grade that makes this one of the two finest 1941 proof dimes at either service. NGC reports just seven other PR69 dimes for all dates in the short proof series 1936-1942, while PCGS lists just three PR69s, all 1942 coins. The current coin is seemingly unsurpassable for Registry Set purposes. Census: 2 in 69, 0 finer (1/20).
    Ex: Long Beach Signature (Heritage, 2/2016), lot 3171.(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 27DM, PCGS# 5076)

    Weight: 2.49 grams
