Description & Analysis

This issue is readily available in all circulated grades, and Mint State pieces of so-so quality are likewise common. Several Denver Mint coins of the late 1920s were not issued in great numbers until the worst of the Great Depression began to lift in 1934, and these were commonplace in coin ads of the late 1930s and '40s.

While more sharply struck as a rule than D-Mint cents of 1926 and earlier, fully struck examples are still the exception. Most will show light to moderate erosion of the dies.
