Description & Analysis

This issue enjoyed a large mintage, and the well-established practice by collectors of saving uncirculated rolls has resulted in a large pool of survivors. Gems are thus fairly plentiful, but even those in the higher grades may show signs of die erosion and incomplete striking.

Minor repunched mintmarks are numerous for 1946-D cents, but only those of general interest are recognized by NGC under its VarietyPlus Service.

1946 cents of all three mints feature a very broad and rakish numeral 4 that sets them apart from other dates in that decade.
