1918-D. NGC graded MS-65 Full Bands. A nice white coin. A remarkably gorgeous specimen of this date, one that pretty much was in short supply in Full Bands since it was struck. A coin that presents an outstanding opportunity for the Mercury dime specialist, or for that matter any enthusiast of rare coins. For one who must have the best for his or her collection, this 1918-D is it. Low population in the NGC register, its satiny surfaces display continuous luster and vibrant silvery highlights, fields, devices, with nary a single distraction is to be found even under magnification. Far from the norm for most coins from this issue, the strike is outstanding, with sharp detail in the centers. The central bands on the reverse are clear, nicely split and fully formed. A grand coin that would be draw attention to of any top-end Mercury dime collection, and one on which we expect forceful bidding to carry the day. Pop 9; 1 finer in 66FB.
Estimated Value $9,000 - 10,000.

Realized $10,638
