David Hall: The 1912-D is the second Denver mint Lincoln cent. It is rarer than the 1911-D and virtually identical in rarity to the 1913-D. It's a scarce semi-key date in circulated grades and it is rare in gem MS65RD or better condition. Strike varies and can sometimes be a problem. The color on full reds is somewhat subdued by the red color is usually good.
