A Late Date Set of Mercury Dimes with Full Bands does not appear to be a major challenge, except for one coin. For some reason, the 1945-P is a significant rarity with Full Bands. While as a simple date it is dirt common, finding a Full Bands example is anything but easy. In thirty years, PCGS has certified only about 120 examples. That's a average of only about four per year! And while for many 18th and 19th century rarities that may seem like a lot, for a set as popular as Mercury Dimes, it is downright RARE. Good luck.

Notes: This set has bonuses. Please see the Set Composition for a listing.
