MERCURY DIMES 1923 S 10C MS FB. The fairly high mintage of dimes at the San Francisco Mint in 1920 was sufficient to meet the needs of commerce in the West throughout the recession years of 1921-22. Indeed, it was not until the second half of 1923 that production resumed, and that year's total was less than half the number coined in 1920. 1923-S dimes were hoarded from circulation as a semi-key date during the 1930s-50s, but such coins were almost invariably worn down to Very Good or lower. Uncleaned, problem-free examples grading Fine and higher are elusive, and Mint State survivors are very scarce.
Few of these coins will display Full Bands. The decade of the 1920s was a time of austerity at the three mints, and dies were used far too long, producing poorly struck coins with many blurred or missing details. Extremely Beautiful, key date, 1923-S Mercury Dime in a PCGS MS 62 FB (Full Bands on Torch) with light, gorgeous natural rim toning on obverse and reverse! I do not crack out coins or mess with the grading services because I used to work for the largest one and have no love for the politics of it all.
