1942/1-D Mercury Dime PCGS MS66FB

Easily One of the Finest Survivors

Both the Philadelphia and Denver versions of the 1942/1 overdate Mercury dime are doubled die (or dual-hubbing-error) varieties, but the pickup points are different between the two. The 1942/1 Philadelphia shows a rather obvious (plain to a good pair of unaided eyes) 1 downstroke at the fore points of the 2. The 1942/1-D is considerably harder to spot, and the pickup point is a little notch of doubling at the bottom of the 4 in the date, rather than the 2. (There are signs of a 1 under the 2, but they are far fainter than on the 1942/1 Philadelphia variety.) This one is brilliant and quite pleasing. The PCGS population is 13 with 5 higher, though 4 of the latter are 66+ examples. In other words, only one MS67 has been recognized.
