**Now that's what I call toning!**

Coins-United States | Kepi

You know I'm a push over for a beautifully toned Mercury Dime. These are my favorite of all the US coinage.  So when this one came up for auction I couldn't resist.  It's a 1945- D graded MS 66.   It almost looks like full bands although the grader didn't specify that. It has an icy feeling with those blue and purple hues. It seems that for some reason there are a lot of toned Mercury Dimes dated in the 1940's.  Hope you enjoy the photo's!
