Jaime Hernandez: The 1945-P Lincoln cent is a semi tough date to find in MS66 grade or higher. Many MS66 examples are just average for the grade, with very few examples being high end MS66 coins. There are possibly around 2,500 examples that exist in MS66 grade and probably about 5%-10% f those are very nice for the grade, all others are either average or less than average.
In MS67 condition, this issue becomes very difficult with possibly 100 examples, more or less, exist in this grade.
