Owner's Comments

"Perfecta" Ex. Abe’s Coloring Book | A pure glowing Emerald Piece, 1 of 5 pieces that originated from the same place. Possibly the nicest out of the 5 pieces. Possible upgrade in the future.

Expert Comments

Jaime Hernandez

The 1942-P Lincoln Cent is fairly common as hundreds of millions of them were struck. Most of them still exist but many of them are in circulated condition. Examples in uncirculated condition can be purchased for a few cents to a few dollars each. Only in MS66 condition and higher are they scarce. Anything grading higher than MS67 is a very scarce coin as very few examples exist nicer than MS67 condition.
