Description & Analysis

The mintage of cents at Philadelphia fell drastically from 1953 to 1954. This was due perhaps to the planchet problems evident in the 1954(P) cents. Most are rather dark and were coined from noticeably worn dies. This issue is genuinely rare in MS 67 RD.

There are no noteworthy varieties for 1954(P) cents.
