    Thanks. There's something about old VF and XF coins with honest wear that i just love. It's not a coin I needed when I saw it at the LCS, but I just loved the look so I had to have it.

    Speaking of which. I was purposefully less than forthcoming by posting the AU-55 image above. The coin and insert are/were counterfeits, and the holder is/was altered. It was an eBay purchase I made back in 2010, and thru a bit of luck, one with a zero-dollar tuition fee as I was able to get all of my money refunded.

    The reason I posted the image I did is the insert. The PCGS grader I spoke to back then told me the insert was "instantly recognizable" as being counterfeit. To this day, when I look at the picture I cannot tell. I thought it would be interesting to see if any of the folks who viewed the post would flag it as such. If I've violated any protocols or anyone's sensibilities, please accept my apologies.

    So in reality, here is my 16-D:

    If we were all the same, the world would be an incredibly boring place.

    I for one can't/couldn't tell.

    @JeffersonFrog scrolling thru your holder looked good to me. Blowing up the coins picture the dime is obvious to me. The holder not. It’s hard for me to get a grip on bad holders they keep changing them I can’t ID all the generations
    Glad you got your money back

    Hallett pedigree. Was CAC before regrade. I'll send it in to get the sticker replaced some day.

    Nice one, Wayne.

    I have never owned one. I think I found all of the other dates from circulation back in the early 1960's.

    Your 1916-D is a very solid G-4. The reverse is nearly a G-6. I plucked the nicest G-4 I had ever seen at the 2010 Boston ANA show. It got gold stickered by CAC afterwards, the only one .
