Description & Analysis

1951 proofs only rarely have the satiny or semi-brilliant finish more commonly seen on 1950 proof cents. Most of this year are fully brilliant, with a modest percentage showing varying degrees of cameo contrast.

A single doubled-die obverse variety is known which displays doubling on the motto IN GOD WE TRUST. The premium on this variety is modest except in the highest grades.
