1916-D Mercury Dime. PCGS graded EF-45. Nice even light toning with wide, perfect rims and sharp detail. It seems the 1916 Philadelphia Mint issue and that struck in San Francisco the same year, were the two that were hoarded, but collectors around the midsection of the country failed to sock away the requisite new-issue hoard. As it turns out, it was this Denver issue that became the rarest in the series, but few were aware of it at the time and for years afterwards. Popular key date dime (PCGS # 4906) .
Estimated Value $5,000 - 5,500.

Realized $6,613
