The LCS had one slabbed, I'm tempted.

I've been saving up for the 16-d for about 8 weeks, this Friday I finally had enough but on Thursday I ordered the Enhanced Proof ASE and I was short $70. BUT yesterday I got a surprise.

About 2 years ago I received a text message from a major motion picture studio about a movie. I sent a STOP text message back to not receive any more texts but I ended up getting 4 more. I took a screen shot and sent out a complaint to the FTC. With screen shot. I totally forgot about it, yesterday I get a check for $85 (woohoo), it seems that the major motion company was sued and I was a "class participant" and my part of the settlement was $85. So I had enough to get the 16-d.

Since my set is circulated and since I had a set amount I wanted to pay, I picked an AG3 one. What surprises me is that this particular coin must have been slabbed in the early 2000's as it was originally listed for $975. Checking the price guides they have a good listed for $1000, and even coin trackers state that they sell for around $900 http://cointrackers.com/coins/226/1...rcury-dime/)

Well I didn't pay that much. As you can see the D is clear.



And she looks good with all her sisters in the Album. And this will be the last set I complete in 2019. Time for the 2020 goals :)

Thank you all! I was really excited about getting the 16-D

The price was good and the coin is probably under graded I could give it a G4

I had no interest in getting the 1942/1 overdate but I found 2 and not crazy priced. One is slabbed, so who knows :) I may get one more Mercury dime :)

Congrats on your 16-D! I don't have one, and most likely never will, so I am envious. I bet someday you'll find a 42/1 that has your name on it! I wish I had bought one long ago when they were cheap. Seems like 16-D prices have always held fairly steady over the years and it appears (to me) that 42/1 prices have recently shot up. They're all great in my eyes though.

Merclover,

The local coin shop has 4 Mercury dime 16-D left at very good prices. PM me and I can send you the LCS information. The 1942/1 is currently over what I want to spend, so it's a distant future purchase.
