Jaime Hernandez:

The 1968-P Lincoln Memorial Cent is very common as over 1.7 billion examples were struck. Even examples in uncirculated grades can be easily pulled from circulation. In MS64 condition or higher they are usually in uncirculated rolls or mint sets. In MS67 condition they are scarce. Anything grading higher than MS67 should be set aside as it is worth a significant premium due to their scarcity in this condition.
