1916 10 Cent Silver Barber/Mercury G-VG 2pc Set
Two Dimes, One Year: Add This Century-Old Dime Set to Your Collection
Savvy collectors know that the first and last in a coin series is most sought-after and a great addition to a collection. Typically, you'll see only one coin design per denomination in each year, but this dime was replaced partway through 1916, so there are two different designs issued for 1916 --- cool! You get both the handsome Barber dime and the Mercury motif to add to your coin collection!
DYNAMIC DUO –Now's your chance to get this phenomenal two-fer with both the first and last year of this special dime series. The traditional U.S. Mint engraver Charles E. Barber's dime changed partway through 1916 to showcase a more modern version of Lady Liberty by designer Adolph Weinman. But the newly-designed Liberty wore a winged cap and was mistaken by some to be the Roman mythology god Mercury, thus this more modern dime became known as a Mercury dime. It's a century-old silver set your collection SIMPLY MUST HAVE!
STRUCK IN 90% SILVER – Weighing 2.5 grams, this popular set of two dimes is struck in fine 90% fine silver. A treasured set of pure silver, historic in significance.
G-VG GRADE- Finding these old coins in Good (G) to Very Good (VG) condition is amazing for their age. Each historic coin arrives sonically sealed in an acrylic slab for preservation and protection.
WHO KNOWS HOW MANY? – This is your chance to own the first of the series of Mercury dimes AND the last of the Barber dimes. And although the mintages for the 1916 Mercury dime were at one time over 22 million, many of them were melted for the value of their silver. Who knows how many are even still in existence. Why not add this set's splendor to your collection, just to be safe! Call or click to GovMint.com and snag your set today.
Both of these dimes are sadly becoming harder and harder to find. If you've ever thought about owning them, now's your chance to get both in one, fantastic set! Order NOW!
