    Important 1942/1 Mercury Dime MS65 Full Bands

    1942/1 10C MS65 Full Bands PCGS. The fabled 1942/1 is the most popular variety in the Mercury Dime series, and it is also one of the most desirable overdates in U.S. numismatics. This overdate was produced sometime within the last four months of 1941, when the engraving department at the Philadelphia Mint was preparing dies dated both 1941 and 1942. At least two 1941-dated dies were converted for 1942 production--one remained in Philadelphia, the other was shipped west to the Denver branch mint. Coins produced at the former facility are scarcer than their D-mint counterparts, especially in the finer Mint State grades.
    This vibrant, untoned Gem is very well struck in all areas, not just on the horizontal crossbands, and is just a few wispy facial blemishes from an even loftier rating. Its importance to the serious collector of the extremely popular Mercury Dimes series cannot be overstated. Population: 9 in 65, 6 finer (10/03).(#5037) (Registry values: P3, N14000) (NGC ID# 23K4, PCGS# 5037)

    Weight: 2.49 grams
