Description and Analysis
Lincoln Cents, Wheat Reverse
1944 D/S 1C MS
Description & Analysis
Numerous repunched mintmarks are known for this date, but the most desirable coins are the two overmintmarked issues. FS-511 (S high) is the more obvious and thus more highly sought one, but FS-512 (S low) is also popular. See the VarietyPlus webpages to distinguish the two varieties. The example illustrated may be expanded to see the overmintmark.
In the past NGC did not distinguish between these two varieties, and the population figures for 1944-D/S which do not specify the FS numbers may include examples of each. Anyone in possession of an NGC-certified piece which does not include the FS number may have this added by submitting it for VarietyPlus designation.
