DESCRIPTION Exceptional Gem Red 1913-S Lincoln CentJust 1 Finer at PCGS1913-S Lincoln Cent. MS-66 RD (PCGS). CAC.
A radiant and original Gem with warm tangerine patina and scattered powder blue shades throughout. Impressively preserved with untroubled fields and beautiful satiny luster on both sides. It ranks among the very top survivors known and just a single coin has been graded finer by PCGS. At CAC, this piece is tied with just one other example at the top of that population report. Scarce in an absolute sense due to a relatively limited mintage of 6,101,000 pieces, this San Francisco Mint issue is a significant strike and condition rarity even in MS-65 condition, with only about 200 known in all Gem levels. As a fully lustrous MS-66 RD (PCGS) CAC, as here, this is destined for the most sophisticated Registry Set participant who demands nothing but the very best.PCGS# 2467
