So when we say average, we mean in a similar condition to other coins issued in 1916, and mint state meaning it is certified MS+ by one of the top coin grading companies. [?].

Additional Info: 1916 was the 1st year that the Mercury (actually named the Winged Liberty) dimes were minted. These beautiful dimes are 90% silver. If a mint mark was placed it would be on the reverse, near the word "one" but you wont find one on this coin as it was minted in Philadelphia. Fully struck versions of this coin worth more.

Numismatic vs Intrinsic Value: This coin in poor condition is still worth $1.28 more than the intrinsic value from silver content of $1.72, this coin is thus more valuable to a collector than to a silver bug. Coins worth more to a collectors may be a better long term investment. If the metal prices drop you will still have a coin that a numismatic would want to buy.
