Mercury Dimes
1945 D 10C MS

Description & Analysis

As is typical for Mercury Dimes of the late 1930s through the end of the series, Denver Mint pieces of this year are the ones most likely to display Full Bands. When combined with the huge numbers of Mint State pieces saved by the roll, the result is a readily available entry in all grades through MS 67 FB.

1945-D dimes are rich in repunched mintmark varieties. By far the most desirable is the D over horizontal D mintmark.
