The 1941-D marked the highest-ever (to that date) mintage at Denver and, for the collector, the first year of readily available coins in any grade through gem BU. Because of its low value, the vast majority of mint state specimens have not been submitted for certification. Therefore, finding a nice certified specimen may be tricky, though “raw” coins are plentiful. Nice mint state coins are undervalued.
