||1935-D Lincoln Cent. MS-67+ RD (PCGS). CAC.
Otherwise medium orange surfaces reveal beautiful salmon pink overtones as the coin dips into a light. Fully struck and so smooth as to be virtually pristine, this is a remarkable example of an underrated condition rarity among 1930s Lincoln cents. Although the 1935-D is readily obtainable in an absolute sense, even most coins that have been certified MS-65 RD by PCGS and NGC display ample evidence of having been struck from worn dies. Cherrypicking is advised through much of the numismatic grading scale. Of course, as an accurately graded premium quality Superb Gem, the coin offered here is both exceptionally well produced and preserved for a survivor of this 47,000,000-piece issue. Outstanding!
