Description & Analysis

With the wartime economy at its peak, the Philadelphia Mint produced the highest single mintage for the Mercury Dime series. Obviously, this is a very common coin across all grades through MS 67. Most pieces, however, are not fully struck, and those displaying Full Bands compromise a fairly small percentage of the total Mint State population. The certified population is skewed toward FB coins, since those lacking this feature are less likely to be submitted for grading.

A doubled-die obverse is known for this issue, and it appear to be fairly rare. The doubling is slight in absolute terms, but it is prominent by Mercury Dime standards.
