Description:
1942/1-D Dime, MS66 Full Bands
Tied for Finest Known of This Rarity
1942/1-D 10C MS66 Full Bands PCGS. CAC. FS-101. The Mercury dime series includes two 1942/1 overdate varieties, one struck in Philadelphia and the other in Denver. These overdates are technically doubled obverse dies, with a 1941 hub impression followed by a 1942 hub impression. Traces of doubling appear elsewhere on the obverse, confirming the doubled die status. Unknown is whether the doubled hub impression was accidental or intentional. The accidental scenario suggests that the Mint was preparing dies for the 1942 coinage in advance of the new year, and at the same time was still producing a few remaining 1941 dies to finish production in that year. A hub with the 1941 impression was then accidentally rehubbed with the 1942-dated hub. The intentional scenario transpired in the same way, but rather than by accident, a 1941 hub impression was sunk, then a determination was made that no more 1941 dated dies were needed, and the 1942-dated hub was used. Either way, the end result was a dramatic variety for today's collectors.
This incredible piece is tied for the finest that PCGS has ever certified. A few wisps of gold toning accompany the otherwise brilliant and highly lustrous silver surfaces. The strike is bold and impressive, with all details completely delineated. As one of the finest available PCGS certified examples, this piece will appeal to the Mercury dime enthusiast, or the collector of unusual and exciting varieties in all series. Population: 13 in 66 (1 in 66+) Full Bands, 0 finer (6/12).(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 23K6, PCGS# 5041)
