Sales History


The 1942 sixpence is one of the more underrated dates in the George VI sixpence series in mint state despite its characteristic strong strike and even mint lustre. No notable hoards have surfaced of the date though a number of mint state examples are known, most of which grade at the MS64 level. Acquiring the grade beyond MS64 is possible but usually precluded by bagmarks and when the date does grade above MS64, it will certainly command a strong premium. Both the San Francisco and Denver mints produced sixpence that year indicated by an S or D mintmark above the date respectively.
