Hi all

I purchased this Mercury dime minted in Denver Year 1943.
Now I'm curios if this coin could be a FSB (full split band) or just a SB (Split band). So the FSB has roundet bands on the corners the normal split band has just splitted but not round on the corners, what you think?
And could someone say me the grading of this coin, its clear mint state but which number maybe 67?
Thanks.

The center double band leads me to call it a full split band. A solid MS66 at that. Nice!

From what I understand, FSB and FB are the same thing, just different terms used by different companies. In this case, the pics may show an FSB/FB coin. I'll leave the ultimate decision to the graders.

I am not familiar with SB (Split Bands) as a designation. Can you get clear closeups of the bands?
Such Oxygen!

Hey thanks Ballyho, T-BOP . It would be great if this coin is a full split band (roundet corners/edges).
The grading of the coin is always challenging I see it more as a MS-67 FSB, because only minor imperfections.
What you think ist this coin worth?

spruett thanks too. No they are not. Split band is flat butt fully splitted, full split band has rounder bands foremost on the edges and of course fully splitted.
I will take a better closet photo of the dime, when I look close I can see the roundings on the bands.

As far as I know there's no such thing as SB. FSB or FB designations are just what PCGS and NGC came up with. I wish they would just pick one and go with it.

FSB and FB mean the same thing. I'd say MS-66 FB on this one.

Small gouge at 11 o'clock on the obverse might hold back the MS67 and possibly the MS66 designations. Submit it and see what comes back. Beautiful coin though.

Must agree, and there are a couple of other apparent scuffs in the left obverse field as well. I'd have to say 65FSB.

Nice coin nickelback!

To help answer this question regarding "split bands" / "full bands", here is a page from The Complete Guide to Mercury dimes by David W. Lange.

I think the key sentence here is, Although purists may consider this to be an example of simply "split bands", the marketplace generally accepts this degree of separation as representing "full bands".

All just certain people's ideas of what is what. For me I think FSB is FSB. Flat, rounded, almost, full and on and on are just interpretations. For my all FSB set of Mercury dimes as long as I can see the split in the middle band, it goes into my set. Next someone will start about how many feathers are on the Obverse head.
