Description & Analysis

1944-D cents were quite well made, with the majority showing only moderate die erosion. Fully red gems are plentiful from this very large mintage, and collectors may simply avoid those having less than full details.

This issue is rich in repunched mintmark varieties. The best of these are recognized by NGC under its VarietyPlus Service.

The population of 1944-D cents has been diminished a bit over the years by so many having been altered to read 1914-D by trimming away part of the first 4. These alterations are easily spotted, as genuine 1914-D cents have a smaller mintmark and lack the initials V.D.B. seen on 1944-D cents. If that weren't enough evidence, the glaring gap between numerals 94 should give it away.

NGC Price and Value Guides Disclaimer

Disclaimer: The prices listed in the various NGC Price and Value Guides are compiled from a number of independent, third party sources in the numismatic community which NGC believes to be reliable. Prices provided are averages, not specific prices for individual coins. Further, because these prices are only updated from time to time, they do not reflect short term pricing trends, which are quite common and are often quite dramatic, given the volatile nature of the collectible coin marketplace. This is especially true for rare coins, where there are fewer sales and greater variations in sale prices. For all of these reasons, the prices in these guides are designed to serve merely as one of many measures and factors that coin buyers and sellers can use in determining coin values. These prices are not intended, and should not be relied upon, to replace the due diligence and — when appropriate — expert consultation that coin buyers and sellers should undertake when entering into a coin transaction. As such, NGC disclaims all warranties, express or implied, with respect to the information contained in the NGC Guides. By using the NGC Guides, the user agrees that neither NGC nor any of its affiliates, shareholders, officers, employees or agents shall have any liability for any loss or damage of any kind, including without limitation any loss arising from reliance on the information contained in the Guides.
