About 1981-S Ty. 2 RD DCAM Lincoln Cents - Memorial Reverse (Proof)
Most 1981 proof cents are of the Type 1 variety, showcasing a closed S mintmark that was also used on 1979 Type 2 and 1980 proof Lincoln cents. However, later in 1981 US Mint officials retooled the S mintmark punches for its proof coins, creating an extremely clear S mintmark with bulbous serifs. Arppximately 10% of all 1981-S proof Lincoln cents were struck with the Type 2 mintmark, and these are much scarcer than Type 1 proofs.

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.
