Description & Analysis

Since the Denver Mint was not coining the Belgian 2-franc pieces which used the leftover steel cent planchets, the source of the 1944-D steel cents must have been residual planchets not fully cleared out of the tote bins in the early part of the year. The Denver edition is thus scarcer than its Philadelphia cousin.

Mint errors normally occupy a niche in numismatics that does not draw a lot of attention, but the 1943 bronze cents and 1944 steel cents are phenomena which transcend the normal error coin market. Many advanced Lincoln Cent collectors desire to own one or more of these errors as part of their regular collection, and prices reflect this extraordinary demand.
