1934-D Lincoln Cent. MS-67 RD (PCGS). Lovely rose-orange surfaces are as bright and fresh as the day the coin emerged from the dies. Both sides are silky smooth in hand, as befits the assigned grade, with razor sharp detail throughout the design. As the nations economy began to recover from the worst years of the Great Depression, cent production at the Denver Mint was much slower to recover than it was at the Philadelphia Mint. The mintage for the 1934-D is relatively limited at 28,446,000 pieces, although in an absolute sense this issue cannot be described as anything but common. Only in sharply struck MS-67 RD, as here, does the conditionally challenging nature of the 1934-D become evident.
