First year of issue.
Blazing white with brilliant, virtually flawless surfaces. First year of issue.
Choice original example of this popular and desirable key date Mercury dime. A desirable coin whose popularity transcends the series. CAC approved for quality.
The key to the Mercury dime business strike set and one of the most popular of all U.S. 20th century coins. Tied for finest known with just nine examples at PCGS. Further attesting to this piece's spectacular quality, it is one of only four to have gained CAC approval in 67FB. While the other 3 pieces that have gained the coveted seal of approval are toned to varying degrees, this is essentially the only tone-free example with a light golden sheen. Truly a high-end example and the finest that we have had the pleasure of offering. Razor sharp striking detail can be seen throughout with Full Bands definition on the fasces. Satiny mint luster radiates from impeccably preserved surfaces uninterrupted by abrasion. The light golden iridescence over both the obverse and reverse lends to the extraordinary eye appeal. CAC approved for quality.
Pretty gem with light golden tones.
