Exceptional 1925-S Dime, MS67 Full Bands


1925-S 10C MS67 Full Bands NGC. The 1925-S is considered the most poorly made date in the Mercury dime series. David Lange writes in his Mercury Dimes reference that both obverse and reverse are plagued by heavy die polishing and erosion and a generally weak strike throughout, especially the reverse periphery
Despite this date's reputation, the present Superb Gem displays full delineation not only on the bands but on most of the peripheral letters as well. These are frequently indistinct on some '25-S specimens. Dappled medium intensity gold, red, lime-green, and sea-green patina races over the obverse, ceding to mere hints of this color palette on the reverse. Lustrous surfaces are well preserved. Census: 5 in 67 Full Bands, 0 finer (11/09).(Registry values: N7079) (#4953)
