Lot Description
1942 10C MS68 Full Bands PCGS. Ex: Stokely Collection. With a staggering original mintage of 205.4 million pieces, the 1942 is obviously a common date in an absolute sense. Few coins, however, have survived with surfaces as smooth as those of this lovely Superb Gem. In fact, NGC and PCGS combined have certified just three coins in MS68 Full Bands, and none finer (10/03). This is a silver-white example with bright mint luster and full, rounded central crossbands. Worthy of inclusion in the finest Mercury Dime collection. Population: 3 in 68, 0 finer (10/03).
