Have you ever wanted to own a piece of Numismatic History? Here’s your chance!

The 1916-D Mercury Dime is considered a "Key Date" in the series, and it holds special significance among collectors. Here are some factors that make the 1916-D Mercury Dime notable:

Low Mintage: The 1916-D Mercury Dime has a relatively low mintage of only 264,000 coins. Low mintage figures often contribute to a coin's rarity and desirability among collectors.

First Year of Issue: The 1916-D is the inaugural year of the Mercury Dime series. Being the first year of issue adds historical significance to the coin, and collectors often seek coins from the first year of a new design or series.

PCGS Grade: This coin has been deemed genuine from PCGS (Professional Coin Grading Service).

Grade: "Scratch/Fine Detail" there is a little scratch that has affected its overall grade. While this may impact the coin's condition, the rarity of the 1916-D date often compensates for such imperfections, and collectors are still interested in acquiring this key date despite lower grades.

Mercury Dime Design: The Mercury Dime, designed by Adolph A. Weinman, is known for its beautiful and intricate design featuring Liberty wearing a winged cap (often mistaken for the Roman god Mercury) on the obverse and a fasces (bundle of rods) with an olive branch on the reverse.
