Description & Analysis

As with so many of the cents from the late 1940s, a very high mintage did not guarantee a high number of survivors in the top grades. Average quality Mint State pieces are quite common, but spotting and light staining have taken their toll. This problem may have to do with the method of planchet preparation and cleaning.

This issue is free of all but the most trivial varieties.
