    1942/1-D Mercury Dime, MS64+
    Full Bands
    Popular Guide Book Overdate

    1942/1-D 10C FS-101 MS64+ Full Bands PCGS. The remnants of an undertype 1 are visible beneath the primary 2 in the date, but the undertype is fainter than on the Philadelphia overdate of this date. A better pickup point might be a little notch of doubling at the bottom of the 4, which shows plainly on this specimen. Not only is the 1942/1-D Mercury dime a dual hubbing error, it is also a doubled die, with strong doubling on the letters in IN GOD WE TRUST. This popular Guide Book and Cherrypickers' variety is an elusive issue in high grade.

    This Plus-graded Choice specimen exhibits sharply detailed design elements, with fully split and rounded bands on the fasces. The well-preserved surfaces are lustrous and lightly toned. Population: 55 in 64 (6 in 64+) Full Bands, 36 finer (8/20).
