Lot Description
1928-S 10C MS67 Full Bands PCGS. The 1928-S Mercury dime enjoyed a medium sized mintage of 7.4 million pieces. The issue is conditionally rare with Full Bands, as NGC has graded only 75 specimens in all Mint State grades with the Full Bands designation. In David Lange's estimation the 1928-S dimes were better made than most products of the San Francisco Mint during the 1920s, "though examples having full bands form a minority of the surviving Uncirculated population." The present coin is a stunning specimen, with mostly brilliant surfaces, highlighted by a light overlay of golden toning. Vibrant mint luster and a sharp strike make this example a visual treat. Only seven coins have been certified in MS67 Full Bands at both NGC and PCGS combined, with none finer (3/09). From The Joseph C. Thomas Collection.
