David Hall: The 1917-S has a relatively large mintage for early branch mint Mercury dimes. In fact, the 1917-S is the highest mintage pre-1941 S-mint Mercury dime . Not surprising, the 1917-S is fairly available in circulated grades. Mint state examples are scarce and Gems are very scarce. Strike is usually not a problem with this issue and full band examples can be found without difficulty. Luster is usually more satiny than creamy.
