A fully struck, lusturous 1944-D Mercury dime from the Denver mint. Original mint luster remains throughout with full bands on the reverse. Issued at the height of World War II, the Denver mint struck 62,224,000 dimes in 1944. Many of these survive today, even in gem condition. However, of the almost 20,000 1944-D dimes graded by NGC and PCGS as "full bands", only approximately 180 of these are available in MS68. A conditionally rare, superior gem mint state example worthy of the finest collections.
