CPG® prices represent retail levels. Collectors should refer to CPG values as a starting place for their negotiations, or auction bid reference.

Greysheet/Greensheet prices are wholesale market levels for collectible coins/paper money intended to indicate what a dealer, or wholesale, buyer would pay for the described item in the specified grade. Greysheet/Greensheet represent "sight-seen" values based on a buyer's in-hand review. The actual value can be more or less than this depending on factors including eye appeal and market timing.

Bluesheet (NGC & PCGS) prices represent the highest sight-unseen offers to buy on dealer networks like CDN Exchange. In many cases, there are no active sight-unseen buy offers, so CDN looks to the recent lowest market values for such an item. For this reason, Bluesheet values typically represent the floor of the market for the specified item. CDN only tracks Bluesheet on certain items.

CAC prices are for U.S. coins that meet the standards of the Certified Acceptance Corporation. You can learn more about CAC on their web site.

Price movement is indicated for price changes in the last 30 days.

Catalog Details

The 1930-S Lincoln cent is a tough coin in MS64 or better, which owes to the fact that relatively few examples were saved in uncirculated condition. This would certainly have something to do with the onset of the Great Depression, when most folks, including cash-strapped coin collectors, were more concerned about paying the rent than saving one-cent coins for posterity. This was the situation throughout the early 1930s, and thus in part why most of the branch-mint Lincoln cent issues from this time are relatively scarce in the higher grades today.
