Description & Analysis

The 1960 Small Date Lincoln cents are a well-known and popular variety. The Mint found that the "0" in the date of the small date variety was subject to breakage and filling with a die chip. Because of this, the mint scrapped that particular master die and created a new one with enlarged digits in the date. Because of this, the 1960 small date Lincoln cent is the scarcer of the two types.
