Here's an unfound fact and link.

Not even Wikipedia could find this for its lincoln cent mintages page.


We'll see...WHAT? What brought your attention...?

    Because they didn't have a mint mark they went into the mintage for the P. ;)

    West Point produced pennies from 1973 to 1986 to reduce production pressure on the other facilities.

    Those cents vanished into the billions of P cents issued. Cheers, RickO

    Were they struck with an 81 or an 82?

    They were dated 1982. On several occasions, the West Point mint has made Lincoln cents without putting a 'W' mintmark, just adding the mintage to the Philadelphia mintage. This was done before any coins had a 'W' mintmark, I believe as far back as the '70s.

    I figured that since eBay was not flush with zinc 1981’s.
