Description & Analysis

This was a high mintage issue for the Denver Mint, and it came at the onset of the Great Depression. As a consequence, many of these coins remained undistributed until 1933-34 and were then scooped up by the nascent roll market. 1929-D have always been common in Mint State, though fully red gems remain fairly scarce.

Most 1929-D cent are poorly struck as the result of overly worn dies. Blurring and stretching of peripheral elements, such as the wheat heads and the second 9 of the date are quite often seen. A fully struck example from fresh dies is a rarity.
