**Now that's what I call toning!**

Coins-United States | Kepi

You know I'm a push over for a beautifully toned Mercury Dime. These are my favorite of all the US coinage. So when this one came up for auction I couldn't resist. It's a 1945- D graded MS 66. It almost looks like full bands although the grader didn't specify that. It has an icy feeling with those blue and purple hues. It seems that for some reason there are a lot of toned Mercury Dimes dated in the 1940's. Hope you enjoy the photo's!

Great Finds On Mercury Dimes

Coins-United States | Kepi

It's been awhile since I put up a blog so I decided to share my newest finds on one of my favorite coins...Mercury Dimes. I bought these raw at my local coin dealer. I love toned coins so my eyes saw these even before my brain had time to realize they were in my hands, bought and on their way to their new home! ANACS was running a special so I decided what the heck...I sent them in for fun really and waited and waited... Finally they arrived and to my excitement they were BEAUTIFUL!!! Grading at MS67 and MS66 FSB. I was so pleased! Has anyone ever sent in a coin for grading then went through that "stress" of wondering what it will come back as...not knowing if perhaps it's been altered, a fake, low grade or just PERFECT!!!
