Description & Analysis

This has proved to be one of the most consistently well struck and lustrous issues in the Mercury Dime series, and examples are plentiful through the grade of MS-67 FB. From 1937 through 1945, it is the D-Mint dimes that are most often found in satisfying condition, and 1939-D is one of the standout issues. In fact, the coin illustrated was the cover piece for the second edition of David W. Lange's book, The Complete Guide to Mercury Dimes.

Another book, The Authoritative Reference on Mercury Dimes by John Wexler and Kevin Flynn, illustrates no fewer than five repunched mintmarks for 1939-D dimes, though most are quite minor.
