Expert Comments

Ron Guth: The 1945 Mercury Head Dime is a very common coin with one exception -- if it has Full Bands.  Thousands of 1945 Dimes have been certified in Mint State (almost 7,000 at PCGS alone), but barely over a hundred show full Bands.  For collectors looking for fully struck Dimes, the 1945 Dime with Full Bands is the ultimate condition-rarity.
