The most famous of double die variations, the 1955 Lincoln Cent DDO is always in demand, especially when described in mint state as full red in color. This description is certified for the offered specimen by leading grading service PCGS with a flip designation of MS64RD. Showing dynamic full doubling of the motto, date and the word Liberty on the obverse, this exquisite example shines with highly desirable, coppery luster front and back. Estimates are noted for the original mintage at 20,000 coins with a total survival rate of 1,200 in all grades. With PCGS reporting a population of 152 at the offered level and only 17 higher, this “very scarce” example merits serious consideration. More on our website.

Recent sales for this tough variety are recorded in the upper four-figure to lower five-figure range. Offered here at a starting point of less than 50% of listed value for the grade and more consistent with the lesser color designation of “RB” (red-brown), this numismatic gem positions as a sensible investment.
