Classic U.S. Coins > Mercury Dimes 1916-D 10c PCGS MS66 FB - Major 20th Century Rarity in Gem DLRC #: 361721

Item Description:
This coin is part of the Elite Items. Click here for details.

The key to the Mercury dime business strike set and one of the most popular of all U.S. 20th century coins. Superb gem examples of the 1916-D dime are extremely elusive and seldom come to market. In fact, this is the very first PCGS MS66 FB we've ever offered in 32 years! This coin has rich, multicolor toning, matched on both sides. A real fresh gem. The market high price for this coin occurred in June 2010 for a record of $74,750 (Stacks). We think this is a temporary opportunity to obtain this key date at a real (market) discount.
