Top of the Population 1916 Lincoln Cent Featured in Our November 2020 Auction

As a well-produced issue from the first decade of the
series, the 1916 Lincoln cent is among the most popular representatives for
both type collectors and small cent specialists. With a mintage of 131.8
million pieces, the 1916 represents a transition between the lower mintage early
Philadelphia cents and the higher mintages that occurred as the United States
was emerging from World War I. While readily available in most Mint State
grades, the number of survivors of the 1916 cent becomes extremely limited
above MS-66.

We are thrilled to offer a stunning MS-67+ RD (PCGS) CAC
example in our November 2020 Auction that ranks among the finest examples
known. It sits at the top of the Population Reports at both PCGS and CAC, and
NGC has not certified any examples finer than MS-67 RD.  Hints of pink and powder blue accent the
borders of this Superb Gem, with glowing orange and gold displayed at the
centers. Sharply struck and matte-like in the fields.

This MS-67+ (PCGS) CAC 1916 cent will be featured in our
November 2020 Auction, accompanying significant offerings from the E. Pluribus
Unum Collection, the Abigail Collection of Silver Dollars, the Monterrey
Collection of U.S. Type Coins, the Larry Ness Collection of Indian Peace Medals
and many others. The consignment deadline for this sale is September 14th,
and we invite consignments across all categories of United States coins and paper
money. If you would like to consign or have questions about the consignment
process, contact us today at [email protected]
or 800-566-2580.
