Lot Description
1927-D 10C MS66 Full Bands PCGS. CAC. One of the series keys with Full Bands and especially in high grade, the 1927-D ranks 12th out of the 77 issues in the Mercury dime series. This issue has seesawed in value and popularity over the past 60 years. It was originally thought to be a key rarity in 1945. Then, in 1980, Rick Sear reported that the 1925-D was actually scarcer in high grade than the 1927-D. Since then, this has proven not to be the case, and the 1927-D is once again one of the key issues for the Mercury dime collector. This lovely, high-end example has mostly brilliant surfaces with a hint of light peripheral color. The surfaces are remarkably free from abrasions. The reverse fields show evidence of die flowlines that give that side a crinkled appearance. Population: 10 in 66 Full Bands, 1 MS66+ Full Bands finer (7/11). Ex: Long Beach Signature (Heritage, 9/2007), lot 1095. From The Oliver Collection.
