Here we have one of our highlight coins for the upcoming 2019 November Collectors Choice Online Auction. This is our Lot #92030, a handsome superb gem 1922-D Lincoln Cent in MS-66 Red. The surfaces yield a smooth satin finish and the strike is exceptional. Lincoln's portrait and all design elements exhibit impeccable detail. This is a fully lustrous example with an amazing cartwheel effect. Due to the economic recession after World War I only the Denver Mint struck Lincoln Cents in 1922. This is a semi-key date issue with only 7,160,000 struck. Mint State coins with full red surfaces are not overly rare. However, exampled with superior strike and characteristics, such as this one, are exceptional. This is considered a condition rarity. With a PCGS population of only 15 graded in MS-66 Red, and only 2 graded higher at MS-66+. Bidding is now open for the 2019 November Collectors Choice Online Auction.
