Still no 2018 dated coins in sight. The past three days I've been out and about. Bookstore day, shopping, and numerous delicious meals. I pay cash and check my change, as I have been for decades. I spotted a few bright cents and thought, maybe this is it! All cents were dated 2017.
Hi Everyone, Just a short blog tonight as I wanted to share with you my latest addition to my toned Mercury Dime Collection! This one comes from an auction I recently won. It is a 1942 Mercury Dime or "Winged Liberty Head". Graded by NGC as a MS62. Unfortunately no Full Bands, but to me the toning makes up for that. It shows amazing blue, violet and orange tones on the reverse... While the obverse is more golden. There's something about these Mercury Dimes from the 1940's that seem to really tone beautifully, more so than other dates. Any ideas on why this might be? I hope you enjoyed my blog! Any comments are welcomed! Please note that scratches are on the holder...not the coin.
