(No reviews yet) Write a Review

Bright red copper color and well-defined surfaces highlight this beautiful 1953-S/S Lincoln cent from the San Francisco mint.  Graded MS66 Red by NGC, this premium gem example has beautiful mint luster. This is a brilliant example of the re-punched mint mark (RPM) VP-003 variety.  NGC has graded only four of the VP-003 variety with just 3 in MS66 Red and none finer.  This is an outstanding top pop coin for the RPM collector.
