1942 is not a rare date for Mercury dimes. Look on the back of the coin to see if there's a small mint mark letter next to the E in ONE. It may be blank or there may be a D or S. (The W on the front of the coin is the designer's monogram and not a mint mark.)

Any coin that's more worn is worth around 0.072 times the current price of silver. If the coin is uncirculated, prices are higher. Numismedia lists the following approximate retail values as of 03/2013:

No mint mark (Philadelphia):
$6 to $66 depending on quality

"D" mint mark (Denver):
$7 to $500

"S" mint mark (San Francisco):
$7 to $111


There is a so-called overdate coin with 1942 over top of 1941. See the Related Question for more information about this coin.

DISCLAIMER: The retail values quoted are the best available as of the date shown, but may vary significantly due to changes in the precious metals market. Also the wholesale (buying) price of a coin will be less than the selling (retail) price. A reputable coin dealer will be able to give a more accurate valuation based on inspection of the coin.


The highest price only on eBay is $1,775.00.
