1931-S Lincoln Cent IGS VF30
So what’s the deal with the 1931-S Lincoln Cent?
The 1931-S is one of the Key Dates in the Lincoln series. Let’s go back to 1931…The Depression is in its 3rd year… If you were lucky enough to have a job, your average WEEKLY wage would have been around $18! There were only 866,000 of these ‘Pennies’ made in 1931. If you got one in circulation, you would spend it. You couldn’t afford to keep it!
They were scarce the day they were made….Today, they’re a Key Date in the Series!
