Description & Analysis

This is yet another issue that is rare in MS 67 RD, despite its high mintage. As with so many cents of the late 1940s through the early '50s, the problem is attributable mostly to spotting and staining. This issue and the next several Philadelphia Mint cents seem to suffer from a distinctive staining pattern sometimes called "cobwebbing," and the culprit is likely the planchet cleaning process used prior to striking.

On the plus side, well struck examples are fairly plentiful. This issue is almost entirely devoid of collectable varieties.
