1919 1C  MS64RB 2514 1919 1C MS64RB 310 100 “Green Tiger” Ex. MarylandCoins| The only green tone wood grain toning that I could find. A very neat piece that graded MS64BN by NGC and MS65RB by ANACS. | Gold Rating
1925 1C  MS64BN 2558 1925 1C MS64BN 51 10 “Green Aesthetic” Ex. Ronyahski |Absolute beautiful colors of green, purples and blues. TrueViews do not do justice. When I received it in hand, color just exploded. Crazy even color for a 1925 P. | Gold Rating
1925-S 1C  MS66BN 2564 1925-S 1C MS66BN 3 0 "Kona Blue" Ex. Abe’s Coloring Book | 1 of 3 in 66BN, none graded finer in any designation for 1925 S. $12k-36k in MS65RD, this coin is super underrated at only $3k-4k in MS66BN| Gold Rating

1931-S 1C  MS66BN 2618 1931-S 1C MS66BN 2 0 “Nuclear Doomsday” Ex. CopperColor | Described by CopperColor as a 1931 s with nuclear color. Former ICG MS65RB, to PCGS MS63BN, upgraded to MS65BN and upgraded now to MS66BN. I consider this to be a monster considering it is a semi key date.

1940-S 1C  MS65BN 2690 1940-S 1C MS65BN 10 2 "Tissue Toner" Ex. CopperColor | The origin of this coin came from a fairly decently sized hoard of tissue toned lincoln cents of dates ranging from the 40s. The dealer they were purchased from purchased a whole box for just $10. CopperColor was able to purchase them at the FUN show in early 2020. Many nice pieces came from this hoard and I was lucky enough to be able to acquire 2, this present piece and the 42 S in my set. | Gold Rating
