Description & Analysis

This was the first coinage of cents at the San Francisco Mint since 1931, and enough were produced to make this issue common in all circulated grades. Fully red gems are not rare, but they are more elusive than for most other issues of the 1930s. Many survivors reveals soft strikes and/or worn dies, so buyers should take their time to select a superior specimen, regardless of numeric grade.

Only minor varieties are known for this issue.

The recovering American economy prompted a resurgence of activity at the three mints during 1934-35, and this was noted in the Mint Director's Annual Report: "The coinage mints operated for long periods on the basis of two shifts or three shifts daily."
