**Not Just Another Pretty Face**

Coins-United States | Kepi

I thought I would show off my new addition to my Mercury Dime collection. Now I told myself, cut back on the auctions...take a break. But no...I just had to take a peek at the Dimes on one of my favorites auction houses. There it was, a 1916 Mercury Dime with some amazing and I think unusual toning. Graded by PCGS as a MS64 Full Bands. Oh yeah, this one had my name all over it! There was a bidding war though. About 9 people were interested but not serious... ; ) haha I especially wanted this one as it has Full Bands. I have found that there are alot of pretty Mercury Dimes out there, but not too many that have split bands as well. Toning and Full Bands, can't get better than that... Well, I guess it could have been a 1916 "D"...... ; ) haha Hope you enjoyed my blog! All comments are welcome.

*Beauty is in the eye of the Beholder*...Toned Mercury Dime

Coins-United States | Kepi

As you might know I have a weakness for toned Mercury Dimes... After a back and forth bidding war to the last few seconds I came out victorious! ( Without going over budget ) Whew! I was happy about that as I really wanted this beauty! It's a 1937 Mercury Dime MS66FB toned. I have to say the photo's on the auction site didn't do to it justice, although beautiful, when I had the actual dime in my hands the colors were even more brilliant and vivid than I could have imagined! : ) I wanted to share with all of you this beautiful coin!
