Want to sell this 1916-D Mercury dime. Advice?

#1 Unread post by RobinMitchell » Thu Dec 25, 2014 2:47 am

Is this one I should send off for authentication because of its rarity even though it's not in the greatest condition? I read the 1916-D Mercury dime page, but that was really speaking to buyers. I'm the seller who has no business selling this coin without knowing the facts. What else do I need to know? Thanks!

Always a good idea to have the authenticated and certified, it looks authentic, but they tend to sell for a little more when in a reputable grading company holder as well.

The 1916D Merc is the most-faked coin in the world at present. It's on most people's "never buy raw" list. Better to pay a little to have it certified to get more bidders and a better chance at a good price.

Wonderful, thanks guys! Any drama-free and fairly inexpensive routes I should take? I have a short list of coins I could send in at the same time.

ANACS is the cheapest of the top 3. If all you need is certification without a premium for the slab, that'd be what I'd do. Others might have other ideas.
