I have very few of these lovely coins worthy of showing.
My original Mercury Whitman folder missing but two coins, all pulled from circulation, was stolen from the house when I was a teenager. I have been slowly rebuilding the collection, primarily by searching silver melt tubs. This 16-S came loose in a tray lot from a local estate sale. It's without a doubt the best example I have, and now happily resides in my 7070.

Nice! '16-S is considerably tougher than '16-P to find with a solid strike like that. Even FB ones are usually missing some detail in the hair and periphery lettering.

Thanks Moe! It looks like we're off to a great start!

All except this first Merc were collected from circulation in the 1950s

She ain't purdy but she's mine, warts and all!

All of my Mercs were pulled from circulation when I was a kid (early '60s). Funny how once the clad coins came out, I lost interest in collecting (could have had something to do with me becoming a teen ).

Except for one MS that will be later in the thread, all of my others were also pulled from circulation. I just broke them out of 2 old Whitman folders and am taking my 1st try at pictures instead of scans.

1916 P in my Dansco album now.




1916 S is also in my Dansco album, but the pictures I retake didn't look good from the glare, so I used the old one instead.




1916 D is in a NGC holder. VG-10.
