Jaime Hernandez:

This is one of the most diffcult Wheat Lincoln Cents that exist in MS66 condition or higher from 1930 to 1958. Most examples come weakly struck, with nicks and scratches that is extremely difficult to find any examples grading MS65 or higher. Even original rolls contain mostly MS63 and lower grade coins. In MS64 they are somewhat scarce but are easily obtainable with most examples being raw. In MS65 condition it begins to be scarce with many examples already being graded. In MS66 it's very difficult to find and one of the tougher issues from 1930-1958. In MS67 condition they are truly scarce with less than a handful known to exist and none being finer.
