Ok it was zero issues on the return. He also had a 1916 D slabbed. So this one is certified. Saves me money and blew me away he had another one. I thought I would never find one regardless the condition. Condition is not what I want, but I do own one now. $560 and got money back from the fake.

That would be die 1 position, glad you found one but the price is a bit high in my opinion for the grade.

I agree with macmercury, $560 is AG-3 money

I am surprised to see so much of the mintmark on a coin with as much wear and graded FR-2. You would expect the lower part of the mint mark to be somewhat invisible but at least the orientation is correct and verified as genuine. Even though it is a lowball example, congrats on a tough coin to acquire.

I thought as well, but I set is complete for now until or if I can afford or find a replacement. I'm ok with the price seeing he refunded me the money for the other and taking a loss on it. Awesome set is complete minus the 42/1. Hey good looking out on the mint mark placement. I question the mint mark because of the difference in how the D was worn less then the field around it. Thanks to all and well daughter is getting married so guess I'm off to sell it for that now. Be safe and thank you again.

I'm working on a Mercury dime set as well and would love to see your completed set before you sell it!!

Also what does FR02 mean?

I completed mine when I bought the 16-D earlier this year. And to answer shatsi, FR-02 means the Sheldon grading scale of fair 2 on a scale of 1-70, 2 FR-02 being on the quite low end of the grading scale.

By complete set do you include the 42/41, 42D/41, Micro S 45?

Actually, I don't include those since I call them errors and varieties.
