Lincoln Cent Registry Collectors Aggressive

May 22, 2017

     In this week’s Moderns Wholesale Market Dealer Price Guide there are numerous increases in later date Lincoln Cents as Registry collectors are actively seeking specific high grade coins. The 1935 S MS67 Red is up to $875 Market and the 1953 MS67 Red is higher at $650. The latter may seem like a common date, but in high grade it is quite desirable to the advanced collector.

     The early Proof Lincoln Cents are all about the quality and the color. The 1909 VDB in PR65 Red has jumped to $32,500 over the past few weeks. The Proof VDB is always a very popular coin, and when a Red coin is available there are multiple competitive buyers. The 1916 in PR66 Red moved higher to $18,750.

     Last week Legend hosted the Regency XXI Sale in New Orleans with a large selection of patterns. The 1793 Wreath Cent with Lettered Edge in PCGS MS64 BN with a CAC sticker realized well over our Market value of $205,000, selling for $250,000. Below are some selected highlights from this sale.
