Description & Analysis

This date is one in which sharply struck currency coins are often mistaken for proofs. A touch-up of the obverse master hub resulted in greater detail than seen in earlier Lincoln Cents, and a circulation strike from fresh dies is nearly equal to a proof.

Despite this improvement, sales of proof cents continued to slide, and fully red gems of this date are very rare.
