1922 No D Lincoln Cent Strong MS63BN PCGS
The deep chocolate brown patina of this Choice numismatic blunder is adorned by hints of pastel color throughout. Nicely impressed and displaying a satiny complexion that brings life to this charming Brown example. A few thousand examples of the variety are known to exist, mostly plucked from circulation years (perhaps decades) subsequent to the time of issue. Examples grading MS-60 or finer are rare, amounting to just a few dozen examples. No cents were struck at the Philadelphia or San Francisco mints in 1922, and theoretically all 1922-dated obverses should have had a D mintmark, but due to carelessness, the mintmark was omitted from one of the obverse dies shipped to the Denver Mint, where the anomaly presumably remained unnoticed. By the late 1950s, the 1922 No D had become a favorite with collectors and commanded high premiums as indicated by collector guides.
