Description & Analysis

The Denver Mint had not coined cents since the small production of early 1922, and demand for additional pieces returned very slowly to the region it served. Denver coined for the nation's breadbasket states, and American farmers were in a distressed condition throughout the decade.

Most 1924-D cents were poorly struck from quite worn dies, the coin illustrated being exceptional in most instances. It does, however, have the weakness in letter O(NE) typical of so many 1924-D cents. Also familiar with this issue is an indistinct mintmark, as that area of the obverse was the first to suffer from die erosion, a fact which led to the popular "No D" coins dated 1922.

Fully red gems are very elusive, and Mint State coins in any grade are in constant demand. Circulated pieces are likewise quite scarce, even in the lowest grades.
