Description & Analysis

As it had in 1916-20, a wartime economy boosted mintages to new record highs, the 1941(P) cent approaching the billion mark. This issue is common across all grades through fully red gem, but, as the illustrated example reveals, not all were coined from fresh dies. There is no reason to compromise on quality for this coin.

Several doubled-die obverse varieties are known for 1941(P), and these are all highly collectable.
