||1916-S 10C MS67 Full Bands NGC. CAC. Fully struck 1916-S Mercury dimes are elusive as David Lange (1993) points out: "An overall weakness of strike in the central portions of both obverse and reverse characterizes this issue." Not so with the present Superb Gem. Not only are the middle bands full, but the central obverse displays the same bold strike. Lustrous surfaces yield flecks of gold with blushes of deep russet at the upper obverse border. The CAC seal affirms the coin's exceptional eye appeal. Census: 5 in 67 Full Bands, 0 finer (10/13). Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
