My 1919 Lincoln cent got a green bean at CAC

As an MS 69 RED.
Pretty good confirmation

    I wouldn't be surprised if that coin came from a large group of 1919 Lincolns that Bowers & Merena marketed back in the early 1980s. My recollection is that they were very nice looking coins and very sharply struck. This was in the pre-slab era.

    All glory is fleeting.

    291 fifth- No , I bought 3 shotgun rolls of 1919 Lincoln cents around 1990. Of the first 10 coins
    I submitted to PCGS , 8 came back as ms68 reds. Later I submitted 5 Ms 68 reds to PCGS of which one was clearly superior and it came back as Ms 69 red. The coin today is in the same OGH today .

    Stunning! To have an early Lincoln come back graded that high is unbelievable!

    Lakesammen- much less than the value of the Ms 69 red
    I paid a record price for the coins at the time. $ 12,000

    There is a tic on "E" in AMERICA on the reverse. It's a stunning coin, but not a perfect one.

    Stewart:

    How do you preview expensive rolls of coins??

    Was there some risk in that later viewers than you might be careless??

    I'd be nervous......

    Lakesamman - when I saw the coins they were already out of the rolls. I had seen many coins graded Ms 67 red. 1909 vdb’s ,1909, 1925 etc. These coins were special. Even today, almost 30years later, there is not any other wheat cent with as many specimens graded Ms 68 red.

    This is the most pristine image of a Lincoln Cent I have ever seen. Would love to see it in person.

    Curious how stickering has affected you....

    Are you sleeping far better now that JA likes your cent?

    Broadstruck - I respect JA’s opinion. After he looked at my Lincoln’s from 1909 - 1934
    his comment was that PCGS should use my set as a grading set when they grade early Lincoln cents.
    I don’t sleep very well since I had knee replacement surgery but this is a coin forum.
