I already saw a couple posted but I'm going to post mine anyways. Got the lot for $20. My first Mercury dime. Not bad for new on the hunt, changing over from Wheaties!

@cam , that is a nice pick-up. Can you please confirm that what looks like rim bruising on the rev is just an artifact from your photo processing software? Thx.

Spence- If you're talking about the black area on the east side of the reverse, yes. A slip of tje stylus. I found it works well when editing and cropping photos. Blackening the corners of the photo after cropping reduces the kB's, and just enough toget to the 300 mark. How do I comment directly to someone on a thread on here?

Ok good to know thx.

If you are speaking to a specific person within the thread, you can use the "@" symbol before their username. If you want to email someone (i.e. outside of the thread), then there is a little hot button that looks like a sheet of paper and envelope. If you are quoting a specific note from someone, copy that specific text into your reply, highlight it, and then click on the hot link that looks like a sheet of paper with a red arrow next to it.

The problem is, in this grade, it's basically just a bullion coin and probably always will be.
