1938-P One Cent Lincoln NGC MS66 Red
You’ll Be Seeing “Red” with this 1930s Lincoln Wheat-Back Cent!
For many collectors, the Wheat-Back Cent was the first coin that caught their eye. While it featured Victor D. Brenner’s iconic design of President Abraham Lincoln on the obverse, the reverse wasn’t the Lincoln Memorial – it was the coins' denomination, surrounded by a pair of wheat stalks. This discovery opened up a world of collecting possibilities. What other coins existed that we didn’t know about, and how could we get our hands on them? Here’s a chance to give another new collector (perhaps even yourself!) that same joy by securing this 1938 Lincoln Wheat-Back Cent struck by the “Mother Mint” In Philadelphia.
What makes this 1938-P Lincoln Wheat-Back Cent even more fantastic is that it has been graded by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) as being in incredible Mint State-66 (MS66) condition, meaning it features its full original luster, above average eye appeal and no hairlines or other imperfection visible to the naked eye.
Additionally, NGC has certified it as a Red (RD) copper penny, a designation that really locks down its status as a high-grade coin. A Red designation is applied only to high-grade copper pennies that retain at least 95 percent of their original red color on their surfaces. When copper coins are first struck, they have a brilliant reddish-orange color. Over time that red color will begin to turn brown. The color of vintage pennies and other copper coins is graded on a continuous scale of Red (RD), Red Brown RB) and Brown (BN).
