Jaime Hernandez: The 1938-D Mercury Die is one of the scarcer dates in the Mercury Dime series, as it's mintage is about 5.5 million. Just to give an idea of the mintages, most coins in the series have mintages over ten million, while others have mintages in the hundreds of millions. Circulated examples of the 1938-D are easy to find and examples up to about  AU condition are very inexpensive that most collectors can afford one. Examples came well struck that Gem examples exist in MS67 and MS68 condition .
