Description and Analysis

Lincoln Cents, Wheat Reverse
1921 S 1C MS

Description & Analysis

Fully red gems of this issue are extremely rare, though Mint State examples of so-so quality are not hard to find.

This date was widely hoarded from circulation starting in the mid 1930s, so well worn examples are more common than their relatively low mintage would suggest. Some are difficult to attribute as 1921-S cents, since the mintmark was shallowly punched on one or more obverse dies this year.
