    1943-D/D FS-501 Steel Cent, MS67
    Tied for the Finest Certified

    1943-D/D 1C FS-501 MS67 PCGS. Zinc-coated steel cent production was in full force in 1943 to preserve copper as a strategic material during World War II. Dies were created at the Philadelphia Mint as they always were, and then shipped to the branch mints where workmen placed the mintmarks in the die and then sent them to the presses. On this particular die, the D-mintmark was first punched in too low and too close to Lincoln's coat, and then was repunched in the proper position, resulting in a dramatic doubled mintmark variety. Examples are extremely hard to locate and are very popular with advanced collectors. This Superb Gem has brilliant light gray luster and pristine, virtually perfect surfaces. Population: 9 in 67 (1 in 67+), 0 finer (6/19).
    From The ACW Collection. (NGC ID# 22E6, Variety PCGS# 37819, Base PCGS# 2715)

    Weight: 2.70 grams

    Metal: 100% Zinc Coated Steel
