Lot Description
1928-S 10C MS67 Full Bands PCGS. CAC. From its appearance in Kritzman: "This is a spectacular coin whose brilliant surfaces are virtually unaffected by post-striking defects. The mint luster is bright, frosted, and especially intense on this superb piece." The reverse bands are cleanly separated, and the obverse is similarly well-defined. One of the earliest MS67 Full Bands examples of this issue certified; today, there are seven such pieces in the PCGS Population Report, but there are still none finer (6/10). Ex: Kritzman (Heritage, 1/2002), lot 6643, which realized $18,400. From The Joshua II Collection of Mercury Dimes, #1 All-Time Finest PCGS Registry Set.
