|1922 "Plain" NO "D" LINCOLN CENT,
AU-50 (ANACS). Die Pair 2, the scarcer "strong reverse." This
example has a strong full date unlike many such cents of this type.
Still has hints of mint red around devices. This is one of
the hardest Lincoln cents to obtain and is especially difficult this nice.
Pure plain 1922s are estimated to come from only a few thousand of the last
coins minted. This is an above average coin for its grade. Priced reasonable and right at $5,100.00 with the ANACS
slab. (A recent advertised slabbed
AU-50 was selling for $8,100.00 and Coin World's "Coin Values" puts the
retail price at $6,000.) No discounts.
This classic rarity Lincoln, in XF, was characterized some two decades ago in the Coin Dealer Newsletter (11/93 Monthly Supplement) as one of the great investment coins over the last decade. Many top auctions are without this tough date let alone in higher grades.
1922-D LINCOLN CENT, MS-64 RED BROWN (ANACS). Obverse is almost completely red and reverse mostly red with slight hint of brown toning. No visible distracting marks or spots. A 65RB goes for about $750.00. This one in MS-RB-64 only $255.00 .
1931-S, LINCOLN CENT ANACS GEM MS-65 Red-Brown. Again a gem coin, almost all deep red, a key date. $480.00
PROOF LINCOLN CENT, 1938, GRADED BY ANACS PROOF-60 Red-Brown. Proof issues of this period were minted in very limited quantities (14,734). (945955) $30.00
PROOF LINCOLN CENT, 1940, GRADED BY ANACS PROOF-60 Red-Brown. Proof issues of this period were minted in very limited quantities. $30.00
|1955-P CENT DOUBLE DIE OBVERSE, ANACS AU-55, shows some deep original red. Another one of the "classic" rare Lincoln varieties, with Breen estimating only 20,000+ minted and Forman 17,000. PCGS cites only 25,000. The grading services have only graded these coins in the hundreds, not thousands. This is a highly popular type listed in the Red Book and now considered scarce in high grades. Prices are going up. Coin Values has this coin at $2,200.00 in its July edition recent auction prices have been higher than our price. Ours right for the grade in every way, just $2,050.00|
|1955-P CENT DOUBLE DIE OBVERSE, ANACS AU-50, just below the above, shows still some deep original red. Another of the "classic" rare Lincoln varieties, with Breen estimating only 20,000+ minted and Forman 17,000. PCGS cites only 25,000. The grading services have only graded these coins in the hundreds, not thousands. This is a highly popular type listed in the Red Book and now considered scarce in high grades. Ours below Coin Values July quote of $2,000.00 at $1,800.00.|
1972-P DOUBLE DIE OBVERSE, ANACS MS-63 RED, Breen 2265. Estimates are that 75,000 of these types released. This is the major doubled die variety I, only fault is a few darker very small spots on reverse, otherwise, obverse quality is frosty red and higher than graded. Another variety that is listed in the Red Book. A reasonable price at $700.00
