Item Description:
A truly spectacular example of this popular overdate variety, tied for second highest graded at PCGS.Gorgeous luster blazes with strong cartwheels across both sides of the coin. 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! CAC approved for quality. PCGS+ grade for premium quality at the top of end of the assigned grade.
