Lot Description
1920-D 10C MS67 Full Bands PCGS. CAC. On 1920-dated dimes, particularly the 1920-D pieces, many examples show weakness at the final digit of the date. Though the present Superb Gem shows merging between the 0 and the rim and a measure of general softness in the area, these traits appear only on close inspection, as the dappled gold, umber, and forest-green toning at the margins is far more eye-catching. Largely silver centers have impressive detail, and the whole is carefully preserved. A memorable example of this issue which is infamous among specialists. Population: 6 in 67 Full Bands, 0 finer (6/10). From The Joshua II Collection of Mercury Dimes, #1 All-Time Finest PCGS Registry Set.
