    I'm only counting 4 FS...unless the foundation at the top that the columns rest on is counted as a step (?). But like the other, this also has some outer steps but can't zoom enough to tell how least one side and maybe both...?

    65 NoFS

    I think there's just (barely) enough to hold it from 66

    67 not fs....clean and lustrous but I think that 5th step has just a little too much of it missing to make fs

    I'm not sure what method you are using, but the accepted method to count steps is to count the number of complete uninterrupted lines and then add one. So if you see 4 lines, then the coin has 5 full steps.

    I voted MS66 not FS on this one. This coin is not as clean as the '38D but still a very nice one!

    MS65+ FS. Ive seen coins with 4 steps slide into FS if most of the last step is there.

    We had a lot of guys say MS66, and that is what NGC said back in the 90's, but remember, NGC didn't create the 5FS designation until 2003.

    didnt know it was in an old fatty holder I would of guessed 66 not 66+ You didn't tell us that and the poll says pcgs not NGC some simple mistakes.

    So, is this in a NGC No line Fatty or a PCGS slab?

    Well, it started in a NGC no line fatty slab, then it got cracked out and spent a decade raw in my album collection. Currently, it resides in a PCGS slab, but I think we can give the guys who guessed MS66 a few hours of glory before we sink their ship.;)

    This one isn't too high, it is an MS67 FS all day long, I was actually expecting an MS67+ FS. This is the most lustrous 1942-D I have ever seen. My decision to submit it was because it stuck out like a sore thumb in my album collection and was significantly nicer than any other coin on page 1. My album collection consists of all gem and premium gem coins, many of which were cracked out of older slabs, just like this one.
