    Challenging 1924-S Lincoln Cent MS65 Red

    1924-S 1C MS65 Red PCGS. The 1924-S is another of the significant strike rarities from this decade originating at the branch Mint in California. From a reduced mintage of just under 11.7 million pieces, Mint State coins of any grade are difficult to come by and well struck, original Red examples are "scarce as hen's teeth." Offered here is one of the few Gem Red 1924-S Cents yet certified. The surfaces exhibit beautiful sunset-orange accents and are uncommonly bold for the issue. A few flecks of carbon on Lincoln's shoulder only verify the originality of this high quality representative. Based on population figures, unimprovable quality for one of the most challenging Lincoln issues in the entire series. Population: 8 in 65, 0 finer (3/05).

    When it came to selling my coin collection I decided they were my first and only choice. They never disappoint. Excellent prices when selling through their auctions and you don’t even have to put any reserves on any coins. Simply the biggest company but more importantly the best.
