Certified Coin Marketplace - CAC-Approved Coins Bring Premiums in May 20221. 1916-D Mercury Dime in MS-65 FB

On May 5, Heritage auctioned a CAC-approved MS-65 (sixty-five) grade 1916-D Mercury dime with a ‘Full Bands’ (FB) designation for $63,000 USD. On October 7, 2021, Heritage sold a non-CAC PCGS-graded MS-66 (sixty-six) grade 1916-D dime, also with a ‘Full Bands’ designation, for $43,200. Therefore, a CAC-approved, PCGS-certified MS-65 FB (sixty-five, Full Bands) 1916-D dime brought almost 50% more than a PCGS-certified MS-66 FB (sixty-six, Full Bands) 1916-D dime without a CAC sticker.
