Description & Analysis

This is an issue that is quite common in fully red gem condition, though the population thins considerably at the MS 67 RD level. Most survivors are well struck and show only moderate die wear at most. The example illustrated is fully struck except at letter O in ONE, a common problem area, as this part of the reverse is opposite the deepest portion of the obverse die cavity. The U. S. Mint would solve this starting in 1984 by steadily reducing the relief of Lincoln's shoulder.

Of the many repunched mintmark varieites for 1953-D cents, very few are of more than passing interest.
