Owner Comments:

Mint: San Francisco
Mintage: 191,550,000
Obverse Designer: Victor D. Brenner
Reverse Designer: Victor D. Brenner
Composition: Zinc Coated Steel

Popular steel cent manufactured during WW2.Of the three steel cent issues, the San Francisco Mint edition is slightly scarcer than the others, but it is certainly not rare. Collectors should use care in selecting just the right coin, as steel cents had striking issues that were seemingly unique to this composition. Among the problem areas is the final numeral of the date, which is often weak or even filled in altogether.

This example is gorgeous, with flashy surfaces with stunning eye appeal.
