Authenticating rare dimes

Coins-United States | Russ

Hello, ANA. I need some help.I am going through a collection from a friend of mine and have located what I believe to be a 1916-D Mercury dime. The edges are worn smooth, but under magnification I caught what I believe to be a "D" Mint-mark. I hope you can help me know if it is real or not, like die markers or things like that.P.S. Here are some pictures of the coin in question:P.S.S. I used some filters to enhance its appearance, to make the high points and things stand out, but I included a picture of the unfiltered dime from afar as well, along with an up-close unfiltered one as well.

As I come back out of the shadows, I would first like to say I have not given up on coins, as they still interest me. I got caught up with school and friends and things and never really thought of getting back on here. Lets just say I'll try to post some blog Ideas I've had but never gotten around to, as well as some more stories.
