Worth more than itís weight in silver, but not worth the cost of grading in my opinion.

175 million + minted.
You want at least FSB (full spilt bands on the reverse).

Here is one I found, full split bands, missing the full luster but still in at least very fine condition I would assume.
Like yours unless it is in just about uncirculated condition it would cost me more to slab it than it is worth.

Now a 1916D in any condition is a different story but these...not so much.

Beautiful find. I saw a couple 1941 p mercs at auction with FSB go for around the 15 thousand dollar area

Get yourself a copy of the "Red Book" Its a guide book of united states coins.
by R S Yeoman. In Very Fine condition a 1941 merc is worth about three dollars. Your coin is not worth the investment to get it graded.
