Description & Analysis

Though production fell just short of the 100 million mark, the 1943(P) is nonetheless a very common coin across all grades through MS 66. The generous population of MS 67 coins is quite telling, though some of these achieved the grade largely by virtue of outstanding toning. The large mintage resulted in some careless work in die preparation and maintenance, so a bit of discretion is advised in selecting the "gem of gems."

This issue is rich in doubled-die varieties, particularly so for the obverse. One or two are quite pronounced, and this suggests that the pressure to produce so many dies led to shortcuts in the hubbing process. This is certainly evident in the area of quality control, as such mis-hubbed dies should have been caught before entering the press.
