Lot Description
1942 10C MS68 Full Bands NGC. This beautiful coin combines a high degree of luster with vibrant peripheral toning, ranging from an almost cream color in the centers to rainbow bands of gold, russet, burgundy, and blue at the peripheries. As one might expect from the Superb Gem grade, no surface markings are noted without a search under magnification. For pedigree purposes, there is a small tick on the lower diagonal cord on the reverse. Census data from NGC as of (3/09) shows one 1942 dime in 68 Full Bands with none finer; however, we sold an NGC-certified 1942 dime in this grade in our 2002 New York Signature Sale, and this appears not to be the same coin. Nevertheless, this piece brings an exemplary combination of technical excellence and eye appeal, and would fit comfortably in the finest Mercury dime collection. From The Joseph C. Thomas Collection.
