Jaime Hernandez:

The 1955-S Lincoln Cent is one of the most common issues in Uncirculated grades in the wheat Lincoln cent series. In circulated grades and up to MS64 they are abundant and usually in raw condition. In grades of MS65-MS66 many are still raw while some have been certified. In MS67 they are one of the more common issues in the series with some examples even being available in MS68.
