About 1931 Lincoln Cents - Wheat Reverse
The United States economy was all but decimated during the heart of the Great Depression, and lethargic spending habits suppressed the need for much new coinage during this period. Production of most US denominations was put on hiatus during the early 1930s, though Lincoln cents continued coming from the Philadelphia Mint, though at much smaller numbers than over much of the previous decade. Interestingly, the Philadelphia Mint made uncirculated 1931 Lincoln cents available for purchase to the public as late as 1934. This helped contribute to a relatively large supply of Mint State 1931 Philly cents, which are available in decent supply through MS65-66. The coin is very tough in MS67 and better grades.

About CDN Prices
All CDN prices are based on proprietary market knowledge and technology developed by CDN Publishing, LLC.
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.
