1942-S Mercury Dime – Hand Picked Choice Brilliant Uncirculated MS-63 Or Better Condition.
“Mercury” Dimes were minted from 1916 to 1945. Though these coins have long carried the name “Mercury”, the design is not that of the mythical god, but that of a winged headed Liberty.
Each of these Mercury Dimes will have a minimal amount of contact or “bag” marks and will have a strike that is equal to or sharper than typically seen for this date.
All 1942-S Mercury Dimes were struck in 90% silver and have an original mintage of 49,300,000 coins.
