1919 Lincoln Cent -- GRADE REVEALED

I was thinking AU55, but the obverse is really nice and clean. AU58 sounds right.


I would love to own this coin. Beautiful!

Thanks all for your input. This coin is actually raw, and I just wanted to confirm what I thought when I purchased it.


I went to a coin show last weekend, and looked through hundreds of Lincoln Cents that were in 2x2 holders in various dealers' books. I usually just like to browse and see what catches my eye. Well, the only coin I came home with was this one. It was labeled as "MS64BN" in handwriting on the 2x2, but I could easily see that it was AU with my loupe.


The coin is very attractive in hand. Both sides (but particularly the obverse) glimmer with luster through blue toning. I see no suggestions that the toning is artificial, and it shows no signs of being messed with. The coin is not even remotely scarce, but this particular example I simply couldn't let go.


So, based on consensus NGC GTG experts, this coin is AU58BN. :)
