    Here’s 2 dimes that are always good to have in any condition. A little dirty, a little wear, even a few marks but they are both 100 years old. Yes, 100 years ago both of these were minted and released to the public. A 1921 and a 1921-D Mercury Dime. Both are still in good condition. The dates and mint marks are easily readable. Only 1 Mercury Dime is harder to obtain.

    I was able to obtain my 1921 Merc dime from a Numista member who lives in Germany. Its in G condition but I traded some ATB quarters so its okay for now! ;)

    I am still on the lookout for a 1921 D though!

    Not a believer in the overdates? ;)

    I have a complete set in that grade or slightly better except the 1916-D. I have the key date but it’s in AG. I had an XF but my ex-wife stole that years ago. In fact she stole my entire collection. 18 years later, my collection is bigger and better than it was.

    They are varieties so I treat them separately. I also have the 1942/1 and the 1942/1-D varieties but they don’t fit in the album. :)

    My number 2 Mercury Dime album is a Library of Coins album that does have the spot for the Philly over date. Send it my way as it fits....:)

    I had a 1921 , but had to sell it during hard times. I regret it too, but buying them now is big $$$ yikes

    The prices for key and semi key dates keeps rising for all series. That’s one of the reasons I buy them first.

    I'm glad I bought my '21s more than 25 years ago. At one time I was attempting to complete sets of coins for my Whitman folders, so far the only one I never got is the '16-D. There were some semi-key dates like the '26-S that I managed to find in junk silver lots.

    25 years ago that 1916-D was $350 range in Fine condition. Today is well over a $1000. That’s why I buy the key and semi key dates first.

    Those are certainly nice ones to have! I have a couple myself, and you just cannot go wrong with those semi-keys.

    Not quite all. Counterexample: the 1928-P Peace dollar, which kinda slumped over the last 10 years.

    Congratulations @Collecting Nut. I have like 35 of these and haven't checked the dates. I think I will do that tomorrow. Thank for the reminder ️.

    But it still costs more than other coins in the Peace Dollar series.

    Only in lower circulated grades, looks like. In AU and MS, the 1928 now lists for less than the 1921, to my surprise. (And, of course, we won't even talk about the 1934-S in high grades.)

    I only need 1 to have the set in high grade and I have all those days.
