Expert Comments

Jaime Hernandez: The 1972-D Lincoln Cent is very common in  circulated grades all the way up t MS65 condition. However, in MS66 condition it is scarce and it compares to the 1969-D and 1973-D in scarcity in this grade and higher. In Ms67 condition it is one of the scarcer issues in the Memorial Lincoln Cent series. There are less than a few dozen known in MS67 condition with none being finer.
