Specific notes about this year's cents...

  • Production dropped this year in Philadelphia, but not enough to greatly affect the value of cents made this year. I have found that 1912P cents tend to be just a little harder to find than 1911 or 1913 cents, probably for this reason.
  • Denver mint cents were made in smaller quantities this year as well, even though they are worth less than their 1911 counterparts.
  • Planchet flaws that show a marked lack of proper alloy mix leaves many cents striped in appearance this year, which makes nice, red choice examples very difficult to find. This is the first year in which this is readily noticeable over a large group of specimens.
