Description



Make good collecting sense with the acquisition of this impressive Lincoln Cent lot of (4) in average (BU to GEM BU) condition. These better examples show incredible detail definition and captivate with appealing red-brown to red coloring. Originating during the early years of the Lincoln “wheat-back” run with (3) semi-keys and (1) PCGS graded coin, these ancient treasures are several steps higher than typically offered specimens from the period. Featured are:

 

1911-D shows red-brown color, full head of hair and decent beard definition, bowtie and “D” mintmark are a bit soft, but date and legend are strong, reverse is a bit better with sharp details all around and pleasing luster

 

1912-S shows red-brown coloring with deference to considerable mottling in the field in front of Lincoln’s face, overall strike is superb, hair detail is truly impressive and beard and other facial details are strong, while the obverse tends toward brown in color, the reverse has a nice coppery glow, the wheat stalk on the left is exceptional, but the stalk on the right shows a bit softer strike

 

1914-S shows red-brown color and good strike, both wheat stalks on the reverse show exceptional definition, obverse luster is a bit muted, but reverse shines warmly, hair is also well defined, but beard is fairly blended, bowtie has a raised appearance and date, mintmark and legends are all nicely defined

 

1930 graded PCGS MS66RD, outstanding in every way with blazing red color, brilliant luster, sharp detail definition and nearly immaculate fields
