David Hall: The Denver Mint issues of the 1940s are rarer than the Philadelphias, but they aren't rare in the absolute sense. The 1943-D is of comparable rarity to the 1941-D, 1942-D, 1944-D, and 1945-D. The 1943-D, like the other D-Mints, is often found with truly superb, incredibly frosty white luster. The strike is usualy outstanding. This is an issue that comes really nice!
