|Stack's Bowers||Auction||October 2018 Baltimore U.S. Coins Auction||Oct-2018||1927-S Lincoln Cent. MS-65 RD (PCGS). CAC. Exceptional quality and eye appeal for this conditionally challenging San Francisco Mint issue. Satiny in texture with bright pinkish-orange color, the surfaces are expectably smooth for the assigned grade. The strike is no less impressive with uniformly sharp detail from the rims to the centers. Although recognized as a semi-key date issue as early as the 1940s, by the time the inevitable hoarding of 1927-S cents occurred the vast majority of examples set aside by numismatists were in low grades through Fine. In VF, EF and AU this issue remains scarce by the standards of the type, while in Mint State the 1927-S is very scarce to rare depending on quality. A distinct cut above the typical softly struck and/or lackluster Uncirculated example, and rare thus, this impressive Gem almost certainly qualifies as Condition Census. Worthy of the strongest bid, and destined for inclusion in one of the finest Lincoln cent collections. PCGS Population: 18; 2 finer in this category (both MS-65+ RD). PCGS# 2584. NGC ID: 22CP.
