Dimes was authentic 1942 over -41 D. However, when appraised by a local PCGS coin dealer in my area; that I had not previous with is was rated slightly less than described on eBay. Not a huge loss but not fully as expected. The coin was mailed very quickly after the bidding was closed. Coin was packaged well to protect from damage. May bid on coins from this dealer in the future but my offers will assume coin is mid-way between stated and the next lower typical grade.

This dime may go down in history being one of the most beautiful coins available to collectors. I love collecting them due to their accessibility, but also because of the design and overall price. Great coin, many to choose from and they keep their investment value making the mercury dime a perfect coin for the seasoned collector and people new to collecting.

MS 68 wish I could have one in each year, it simply is the best coin you can obtain. Difficult to find one, if you do, buy it.

The 42D mercury dime is the elite and possibly rarest of theis type dimes. I have been tring to get a bargain 32D for a decade. Finally, after many,many failed attempts at ebay and/or other auctions, I succeeded!

Awesome coin. The old silver coins certainly have an awesome look and certain feel to it. Old saying goes, "they don't make the good stuff anymore"
