Legend Rare Coin Auctions Auction The Regency Auction 32 May-2019 A truly spectacular example of this popular overdate variety, tied for second highest graded at PCGS, and ultra high end quality both in terms of technical and aesthetic quality! A bold, brilliant luster blazes with strong cartwheels that roll across the smooth, problem free surfaces. The strike is as crisp and complete as you would expect for a SUPERB GEM and the blast white silver surfaces are of Premium Quality! The Denver mint 42/1 is scarcer overall than its Philadelphia counterpart, and the under digit is not as bold as either. That is likely the reason why the Philadelphia mint overdate was discovered in 1943, while the 42/1-D was not discovered until the early 1960s! However, by some miracle, there are a small number of GEM survivors for collectors to bid on, fewer still in this ultra lofty grade. GEMs are ALWAYS in demand--especially when CAC approved! PCGS 15, NGC 4, CAC 10. PCGS has graded only 3 in MS66+ FB and just a single MS67 FB finer. Another example sold for $72,000 in the 2019 FUN auction, and that was the first MS66+ FB to sell since June 2013. The current Collector's Universe value is listed at $75,000 and it jumps to a theoretical $120,000 for the sole MS67 FB. This is a true prize for the FINEST of Mercury Dime collections. Ownership of this SUPERB GEM in your sell will vault it to world-class status! Cert. Number 21645878 PCGS # 5041
