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.

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.
