Lot 1386
1909-S Lincoln Cent. VDB. PCGS graded MS-65 Red. An exceptional example of this ever-popular key date. The original red color is fully present and vibrant. Superb, golden-orange color and surface quality. Only 484,000 struck, most of which entered circulation at the time of issue. Some were saved as the first of their kind, and this is likely one that was set aside and carefully preserved since the day it was made (PCGS # 2428) .
Estimated Value $4,000 - 4,500.

Lot 1387
1909-S Lincoln Cent. VDB. PCGS graded MS-65 Red & Brown. Well struck and choice for the grade. Nearly full Red, a fact downplayed by the RB designation. Minting of this coin stopped because of the "offensive" initials of the designer at the base of the reverse. Had the reverse been left alone, this would probably have turned out to be a very common issue! Housed in an older generation, green-label holder, hinting at a possible upgrade.
Estimated Value $2,500 - 3,000.

Lot 1389
1909-S Lincoln Cent. VDB. MS-64 Red. A well struck beauty that deserves careful consideration. The luster is outstanding and completely undisturbed. The coin sparkles with full golden mint luster and delicate rose toning. About the only blemish we can find is a tiny spot on the right reverse wreath. This coin could stir considerable bidder interest among those that take the time to examine it.
Estimated Value $2,500 - 3,000.

Lot 1390
1909-S Lincoln Cent. VDB. PCGS graded MS-64 Red & Brown. Fiery orange-brown color on both sides, mixed with numerous, tiny flecks of carbon. This popular "key" date issue has been advancing in price recently, so now might be a good time to buy one for your collection, before the price goes up any further. The Mint was chastised for allowing Brenner's initials to appear so "openly" at the base of the reverse, so they promptly took them off, inadvertently creating a rarity for collectors. Brenner's initials were not restored until 1918, when they were placed (hidden actually) on the truncation of Lincoln's bust.
Estimated Value $2,000 - 2,500.

1941 Lincoln Cent. Off-Metal Mint Error or Pattern. PCGS graded MS-64. Struck an a planchet made of 90% Copper, 5% Zinc, and 5% Tin (the normal Bronze composition is 95% Copper and 5% Tin and Zinc). Several possibilities exist to explain this coin: 1) it was an improperly mixed alloy, 2) it was struck on a planchet intended for a foreign coin, or 3) it was an early attempt at reducing the amount of Copper in the Cents in anticipation of the need for Copper in the war effort. The premiums for coins in categories 1 and 2 would be small; for Category 3, the premium would be large because now you're talking "Pattern."
Estimated Value $500 - 600.

1941 Lincoln Cent. Thick Planchet. PCGS graded AU-55. An interesting piefort piece that predates the 1942 Thick Planchet Pattern Cents by a full year. In fact, this piece may be a Pattern issue rather than a mint error, as we know of no possible thick planchet foreign coins that were being struck at Philadelphia at the time. PCGS calls this a Mint Error, which is a safe designation for the time being, until more research can be completed. In any event, we've estimated this piece at a fraction of the 1942 White Metal and Bronze Piefort pieces we offered in our May 2003 sale.
Estimated Value $2,000 - 3,000.

1944 Lincoln Cent. P-2078 Thick Planchet. PCGS graded MS-64 Red. These are listed as "experimental cents" in both the Judd pattern and Pollock reference books. Apparently these were struck on planchets cut from sheets of rolled stock intended for the production of foreign coins. Extremely rare as only 3 have been graded by PCGS. This is the finest thick planchet known and the only one ever graded in full red.
Estimated Value $4,000 - 4,500.

Lot 1425
1944 Lincoln Cent on a Thick Planchet. Pollock-2078, Rarity-7. PCGS graded MS-63 Brown. Nice brown and blue toning. Listed as "experimental" pieces in earlier editions of Judd, but dropped from the recently published 8th edition. Pollock explains one possible scenario for these unusually thick pieces: "Other numismatists regard them to be mint errors; i.e., struck on planchets cut from sheets of rolled stock intended for the production of foreign coins." However, we wonder which coins they might be, as we are unaware of any 1944-dated (or 1944 era) world coins struck on thick planchets!

1945 Lincoln Cent, Struck on an Ethiopian 1 Cent Planchet. NGC graded MS-65 Red. Glittering red and brown surfaces. Looks like a normal 1945 Cent, but the weight is a mere 2.7 grams (compared to the standard of 3.11 grams), plus the planchet it slightly under-sized.

1945 Lincoln Cent, Struck on a Netherlands East Indies 1/2 Cent Planchet. NGC graded MS-64. An otherwise normal 1945 Cent, struck on an under-weight and under-sized planchet. The Mint was busy making copper coins for Ethiopia (beginning in 1944) and the Netherlands East Indies (in 1945). Despite their best efforts at quality control, a few of those planchets made their way into the Cent press and came out like this. They are every bit as rare as the 1943 Copper Cents, but can be had for a fraction of the price.
Estimated Value $2,000 - 3,000.

1955 Lincoln Cent. Doubled die obverse. ICG graded MS-65 Red & Brown. Nearly full Mint Red, at least 75% (if not more) remains. Most 1955 Double Die Cents have toned down to a brown color, and finding anything with better than 50% Red is a real challenge. This variety was discovered at the Mint in a larger batch of coins. Rather than destroy the entire batch, the coins were released into circulation. As a result, Gems are very rare, since the variety was not even reported to collectors until January 1956!
Estimated Value $5,500 - 6,000.
