Catalog Notes for 1914-D 1c MS BN: The 1914-D Lincoln cent is one of the most significant 20th-century coins, serving as a major key coin for Lincoln cent series. The issue’s mintage of 1,193,000 pieces isn’t particularly low in the absolute sense, but among Lincoln cents it is one of the lowest production figures for the regular-issue pieces. Perhaps making this piece all the rarer is that it wasn’t necessarily saved in big numbers off the bat, making it a true conditional rarity in better uncirculated grades.

While the 1914-D Lincoln cent is more common than 1909-S VDB cent, both in terms of mintage and number of survivors, it seems to be encountered with less frequency at coin shows. This is especially the case for uncirculated specimens, which are much rarer across the board than the 1909-S VDB cent in Mint State grades. Unless skilled in detecting diagnostics for genuine specimens, beware buying raw specimens as many counterfeits exist.

About CDN Prices:
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.
