1926-S Lincoln Cent. MS-64 RD (PCGS). Pale pinkish-rose color blends with softly frosted luster on both sides of this vivid and inviting near-Gem. Sharply struck, and superior in this regard to most Uncirculated survivors of this issue in numismatic hands. The 1926-S is a low mintage affair by the standards of the Lincoln cent series with just 4,550,000 pieces produced. It has long been regarded a semi to full key date issue in all grades, and most collectors have had to settle for a worn example either due to availability or cost. Very scarce in all Mint State grades, in full Red, as here, the 1926-S is a noteworthy condition rarity that is always greeted with excitement when offered through auction.
