Description & Analysis

The Denver Mint provided the lowest mintage of half dollars for 1942, though this issue is by no means rare. Gems are plentiful through MS-66, with a satisfying number of MS-67 coins, as well. Typical of 1940s coinage, the D-Mint pieces are the ones most consistently well struck.

NGC attributes two RPMs for 1942-D half dollars, though a few lesser ones are also known.
