Description & Analysis

This is another issue that is readily available in fully red gem condition, though the population drops rapidly above the grade of MS 66 RD. While some coins will have less than full strikes, this is not a major issue with the 1927(P) cent, and collectors should settle for nothing less than a sharp impression.

A minor doubled-die obverse variety is noted for this date. It is not especially distinctive, but the small number of such varieties for this decade has made it stand out as a desirable addition.
