Item Description:
Bright red and lustrous with great eye appeal. A no-question full red of Registry quality with a low population and just one graded higher at PCGS. Far nicer than other gem examples of this date that have been on the market recently. It is extremely well struck for the date -- perhaps as sharp as any known. On high magnification, the coin shows multitudes of die file lines -- likely remnants of die touch up after die clashing. The mintmark is a little unusual looking until studied closely. Though it is unusual in appearance for the 25-D it is not at all unusual for a Lincoln cent of other dates. Mintmarks were hand punched into the dies at the respective mints until the mid-1980s. If punched too deep into the die, this appearance of being down in a hole is the result. I suspect this one was nearly erased by the die polishing and punched again, just deeper than it needed to be.
