Lot Description
1923 10C MS68 Full Bands PCGS. When dime production restarted from its hiatus in 1922, mintages came roaring back. At Philadelphia alone, more than 50 million business strikes left the presses. David Lange noted in his Complete Guide to Mercury Dimes that "1923(P) is common in all popular grades, including full bands gem." At the MS68 Full Bands level, however, this example is one of only two graded by PCGS with none finer (6/10). Satiny surfaces are strongly lustrous with a patch of "shine" behind Liberty's head. Silver centers give way to light gold toning at the margins, which comes more quickly on the reverse. Great all-around eye appeal. From The Joshua II Collection of Mercury Dimes, #1 All-Time Finest PCGS Registry Set.
