Expert Comments

Jaime Hernandez

The 1979-P Lincoln Cent is very common as the U.S. Mint struck over 6 billion examples for circulation. The coins are very common up to about MS66 condition. In MS67 they begin to be scarce. in MS68 condition they are very difficult to find and command a very strong premium.
