Description & Analysis

Most 1952 Philadelphia Mint cents were well made, but finding an example that is free of light spotting and staining is quite challenging. While fully red gems are plentiful, these almost always fall short of the desired MS 67 RD grade.

No varieties of significance are noted, but it is interesting that the numeral 5 on 1952 cents has a stubby tail not seen on any other date of this decade.
