Mercury Dimes

This is no ordinary Mercury Dime price list! Rather at Gerry Fortin Rare Coins, eye appealing coins are my focus. I am stocking mostly Gold CAC approved NGC and PCGS holdered dimes. Gold CAC stickers are nearly always found on early generation NGC Fatty holders and PCGS Rattler holders. Gold CAC Mercury dimes have very low populations and are well worth considering in terms of beauty and numismatic industry history. The initials FB = Full Bands.
