Jaime Hernandez:

The 1921-D Mercury Dime is a key date coin. It has the lowest mintage for any regular issue strike coin in the Mercury Dime series. Only the 1916-D has a lower mintage. Although the Mint struck 1,080,000 examples much fewer survive today. Very few examples exist in MS67 or higher.
