Description & Analysis

This is another high mintage wartime issue, and thousands of examples were saved in Mint State. While gems form a minority of the survivors, their overall numbers are still high enough to make this an easily filled slot in anyone's collection. Denver Mint coins were the most well struck of the three mints, so pieces having Full Bands are likewise plentiful.

More than a dozen repunched mintmark varieties are known for the 1942-D dime. Several of these are obvious enough to have broad appeal and will be added to list of eligible varieties as they are submitted to NGC.

Doubled-die obverse varieties are remarkably few for this issue, but the primary one is a very desirable overdate. This is popular enough to warrant a separate entry following this one.

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.
