I've been collecting Mercury dimes pretty exclusively for several years now!

I have an 'almost' complete set of Merc dimes myself. At some point, I need to get them photographed.
Same and Same. Just got "the big one" left. But I have to admit, mine are not much to look at. Pedestrian at best.

The very first US coin I ever got was this 1942-D dime. It was in a tobacco tin of miscellaneous foreign and obsolete coins that my parents had saved and which they gave me when I started collecting during the run-up to Decimalisation. I have always liked the design and would love to complete my set at some stage: at present, I am just picking them up here and there when I find one in a dealer's junk tray. They quite often turn up in the UK - I daresay some were left behind by GIs during World War II:

Guilty, at last count I had somewhere over 6,000 Mercury dimes. I didn't hoard them, just accumulated buying 90% silver, used to always sell my Roosevelt dimes.

Sounds plausible.

I have a complete collection of Mercuries, except the rare one. I am not looking for the last one, nor am I making serious efforts to upgrade. However, I quite like the design. They are plentiful in Canada.

I have a half full album, no keys or semi keys. I have the 2016 Mercury dime if that counts. Just not one of my favorite designs which is odd considering the Standing quarter & Walking Liberty halves are some of my favorites. I used to have a couple rolls but unfortunately sold them before the spike.
I've only been collecting for a couple years (2017). Favorite Coin's are Standing Liberty quarters, Working on my type set: "knowledge is power" -Thomas Jefferson | Coffee, Corvettes, Coins & the CCF what could be better?
