Mercury  1916D 1916-D
Choice HOLD
New April 1! Legendary 20th Century Key Date, Natural Coin Gray Patina, Choice Surfaces, CAC Approval. The 1916-D dime is a legendary 20th Century key date. Most often found heavily worn, this famous key to the Mercury dime series infrequently appears even in Fine grade, let alone with CAC approval. On this example, central details are emboldened by rich, superbly original coin gray patina and emerge from the fields right on the cusp of very-fine sharpness. Given the time in circulation, it's almost inconceivable how the surfaces remained entirely unabraded. Housed in new large font NGC holder with CAC approval.

Gem $395 Superb Gem Original, Burnt Gold -Gray Patina, Frosty Luster, CAC Approval. A premium first year Merucry dime strike from the San Francisco mint. This superb gem has uniform burnt gold patina on both sides along with underlying frosty luster. Housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 holder with CAC approval. Old time toning and eye appeal that is unquestionably CAC worth and consistent with what collectors strive to locate. A 2019 Winter Baltimore show new purchase that belongs in an advanced collection.

An important offering for those collecting against the CherryPickers guide.

Mercury  1942/1 1942/1
Choice HOLD
New April 24! Iconic 1942/1 Overdate, Intense Frosty Luster, Near Full Bands, Rare Mint State with CAC Approval. GFRC is incredibly pleased to be offering an iconic 1942 over 1 Mercury dime. This overdate is one of the most recognizable U.S. coin varieties and a prize for every Mercury dime collector. In Mint State, the 1942/1 dime has the distinction of being the rarest of all Mercury dimes including the 1916-D and 1942/1-D. Furthermore, the CAC population is only 4 pieces at the MS63 grade level. This example is best described as having intense frosty luster and eye appeal of a higher grade. The mint bloom is brilliant with dancing cartwheels. Surfaces are untoned with a strike that is near Full Band compliant. Every minute die polish lines is easily seen with a 10x loupe. The assigned MS63 grade is a technical consideration as there is a tiny abrasion at the base of I in Liberty. Without that non consequential anomaly, this example would grade at least one full point higher, it not two. A splendid offering that is housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 holder with CAC approval. CDN CAC guide stands at $5500 as reference with few auction records. A important offering for the advanced collector of fine numismatic properties.
