The 1942-D is of similar rarity as the 1941-D and 1942-D. It's not a rarity in Gem condition...I would call in scarce only. This issue, like most of the Philadelphia and Denver Mint Washington quarters of the early 1940s can be located in full Gem condition with great frosty luster and beautiful surfaces.
