Description & Analysis

This scarce and popular variety was first reported in 1960, but it did not become well known until late in that decade. Of course, after 25 years the number of Mint State survivors was quite small, and these were found by mere chance among the many ordinary 1942-D dimes that had been saved in rolls at the time of issue.

The product of two separate impressions from obverse hubs of different dates, the result was traces of numerals 41 underlying the primary date. By sheer coincidence one such die was shipped to the Denver Mint, while the other remained in Philadelphia to strike coins there. Though neither as distinct nor as popular as the 1942/41(P) variety, this one is still considered an essential addition to any collection of Mercury Dimes.

While Mint State survivors are small in total numbers, the sharp striking of most 1942-D dimes has provided a disproportionate share of coins having Full Bands.

NGC Price and Value Guides Disclaimer

Disclaimer: The prices listed in the various NGC Price and Value Guides are compiled from a number of independent, third party sources in the numismatic community which NGC believes to be reliable. Prices provided are averages, not specific prices for individual coins. Further, because these prices are only updated from time to time, they do not reflect short term pricing trends, which are quite common and are often quite dramatic, given the volatile nature of the collectible coin marketplace. This is especially true for rare coins, where there are fewer sales and greater variations in sale prices. For all of these reasons, the prices in these guides are designed to serve merely as one of many measures and factors that coin buyers and sellers can use in determining coin values. These prices are not intended, and should not be relied upon, to replace the due diligence and — when appropriate — expert consultation that coin buyers and sellers should undertake when entering into a coin transaction. As such, NGC disclaims all warranties, express or implied, with respect to the information contained in the NGC Guides. By using the NGC Guides, the user agrees that neither NGC nor any of its affiliates, shareholders, officers, employees or agents shall have any liability for any loss or damage of any kind, including without limitation any loss arising from reliance on the information contained in the Guides.
