Expert Comments

David Hall

The 1911, 1912, and 1913 Philadelphia Lincoln cents are of very similar rarity in virtually all grades including Gem Full Red. They are tougher to locate than the 1909 and 1910, but not quite as scarce as the 1914 and 1915. Full Red Gems are definitely scarce and Superb Gems are rare. The typical 1913 is very sharply struck and some specimens have nearly proof detail. Luster is often excellent and Full Red examples usually have a deep red color.

The 1913 Lincoln cent is the second toughest Philadelphia cent in high mint state grades of MS67 or higher, from 1909 to 1929 and even up to 1952.

The 1954 and the 1953 Philadelphia cents are the second and third toughest in grades of MS67 or higher and with the 1914-P being the toughest, in the entire circulation strike Lincoln cent series.
