Description & Analysis

The U. S. Mint had not seen mintages of this magnitude since the booming war years of 1917-20, and the result was an extremely common coin in the 1936(P) cent. This issue is readily available in all grades through fully red, superb gem.

Several doubled-die obverse varieties are known from the huge number of dies used this year. One of the better ones, FS-102, is illustrated above. Though a lovely gem, this specimen is from a later state of the dies, and its variety features are a bit blurred from erosion.

The Mint's payroll rose from a low of 231 persons on June 30, 1933 to a figure of 783 for this same date three years later. This higher number would more than triple during the booming years of World War II.
