Anyone have an idea about pricing of one of these after grading if it happens to receive the Full Band Grade? I got this coin years ago and it was in a plastic sleeve until I saw an article about the increase in value if the bands are fully intact, so I took it out to get a pic to see what anyone thought from the images. Thanks everyone

I have to ask you where you got the blow ups of the reverse of that coin . It doesn't look like the same Dime in your full coin reverse photo which shows NO full bands .

This coin appears to be polished, I would avoid submitting to any TPG whether its full band or not, many of the first year Philly strike have FB.

Bought it at a coin show with my grandfather years ago...been sitting in a container since, kind of sucks if it is polished...how can you tell if it has?

A lot of tiny hairline scratches in various directions from these photos, luster doesn't look normal comparing to original minted coin. Peripheral area seem to have less affected. Perhaps better lighting and photos needed, but the tiny hairline scratches on the obverse don't lie.

A lot more common than you think. I've seen many of the 1916 with FSB at coin shows for about $60 to $80 in MS grades. Now if that was a 16D, you'ld have something.
