1921-D Mercury Dime. PCGS graded MS-62 PQ. Almost full bands. Frosted glass luster and impressive fields for the modest grade allotment from PCGS. This '21-D has plenty of what it takes to attract bidders -- eye appeal, in other words, and lots of it under the natural light color (PCGS # 4936) .

The coinage of dimes was greatly curtailed during 1921 and suspended altogether during 1922. The Mint took advantage of a brief but severe recession to direct its efforts toward recoining the silver dollars destroyed under the Pittman Act of 1918. Having achieved most of this recoinage by the middle of 1923, the Mint resumed its production of subsidiary silver pieces. With only a few exceptions, mintage figures for the dime remained fairly substantial throughout the 1920s.
Estimated Value $1,000 - 1,100.

Realized $1,380
