*Beauty is in the eye of the Beholder*...Toned Mercury Dime

Coins-United States | Kepi

As you might know I have a weakness for toned Mercury Dimes...    After a back and forth bidding war to the last few seconds I came out victorious!  ( Without going over budget )  Whew!    I was happy about that as I really wanted this beauty!  It's a 1937 Mercury Dime  MS66FB toned.  I have to say the photo's on the auction site didn't do to it justice, although beautiful,  when I had the actual dime in my hands the colors were even more brilliant and vivid than I could have imagined!  : )     I wanted to share with all of you this beautiful coin!

That is a great find with such great coloration, even in a photo.(which don't tend to do justice.);> ^-^

This is certainly beautiful toning. And your photos are appreciated. Thanks for the post.

Gorgeous! That is one of the best toned Mercury dimes I've ever seen. You got a gem.
