Description & Analysis

This is yet another wartime issue that is easily found in grades through MS 67 FB. In fact, sharply struck coins are more available for 1943-D dimes than for those of its cousin mints, and this issue is popular with type coin collectors.

There are numerous repunched mintmark varieties for this issue, yet most are too slight to attract much attention.
