Description & Analysis

Like so many issues of the 1950s, a very high mintage has left the 1957(P) cent quite common in fully red gem condition. Still, at the MS 67 RD level examples become scarce. The usual culprits are tiny black spots called flyspecks and slight staining or toning streaks.

Just when it seemed that the Mint had finally become consistent in using the correct style of numerals to match Brenner's original, a stubby numeral 7 was used in place of the appropriate long-tailed figure.

Only the most minor of varieties are known for this date, despite its very high mintage.
