Jaime Hernandez: The 1972-D Eisenhower Dollar is scarce only in grades of MS66 and higher. In MS66 grade it compares to the 1973-D. In high uncirculated grades the 1972-D is one of the scarcer D mint mark issues. The 1972-D is probably the second toughest Denver circulation strike Eisenhower dollar from the Type 1 issues and only the 1978-D seems to be scarcer in very high grades.
