Though the mintage of the 1962 is less than one-third that of the 1962-D, the 1962 about twice as common as the 1962-D in Gem condition. The lower mintage 1962 issue was saved while the huge mintage 1962-D was not. And the 1962-D seems to have much more trouble, as do most late D mints, with rough surfaces, i.e. marks and abraisions.
