Stack's Bowers Auction November 2020 U.S. Coins Auction Nov-2020 1921-D Mercury Dime. MS-66 (NGC). CAC. OH. Offered is a remarkable premium Gem example of this low mintage, key date Mercury dime. Frosty surfaces are peripherally toned in vivid multicolored iridescence that includes red, blue and gold. Sharply struck overall and just shy of a Full Bands designation. Dime production at the Denver Mint in 1921 amounted to 1,080,000 pieces, a sharp reduction from the previous year's total of 19,171,000 coins, attributable to the economic recession of 1921 and 1922. Scarcer than the similarly elusive 1921 in circulated grades, the 1921-D is rare with the expert surface preservation and outstanding eye appeal of the Larry H. Miller specimen. Provenance: From the Larry H. Miller Collection. NGC Census: 10; 0 finer in this category. PCGS# 4936. NGC ID: 23HF. Click here for certification details from NGC.
