1920-D 1C MS66 Red PCGS. This is definitely one underrated Lincoln cent, a conditionally elusive coin that shows a current PCGS population of only five coins in MS66 Red, with none finer (1/07). Most examples of the 1920-D were struck from well-eroded dies that left the wheat ears merging with the rims, and mushy details on Lincoln's coat. Other specimens show a peculiar pinkish color, or are struck on splotchy, dull planchets. This example is well struck, although both dies show signs of erosion. The obverse is fairly well detailed save for the coat near the bowtie, and the lower beard area. The reverse shows good wheat ear details, although there is a bit of orange-peel effect. Both sides are lustrous and brilliant, with excellent orange-gold original coloration. Visible carbon is absent. If this coin were a 1909-S, VDB cent, it would go for well into the five figures. But since it is a 1920-D, it is many, many times rarer in this grade--by a factor of about 30 times! A search through our auction records reveals that this is the finest-graded PCGS specimen of this issue that we have ever offered. Expect a record to fall with this one. Population: 5 in 66, 0 finer (1/07).Shipping: Coins & Currency (view shipping information)
