Description & Analysis

1939-D were very well made, and it is rare to find one struck from worn dies. Denver Mint coins of the late 1930s are almost always of excellent quality across all denominations.

Having a low mintage for a Lincoln Cent, this issue was always a bit scarce in circulation, but the usual number of rolls were saved for the benefit of future collectors.
