1931-S 1C, BN MS66BN Certification #40566753, PCGS #2618

Owner's Comments

“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.

According to a notice in the June 1934 issue of The Numismatist (p. 416), collectors could still purchase Uncirculated 1931-S Cents for "the face value of the coins and an amount sufficient to cover the mail charrges by first-class mail."
