1977-S Lincoln Cent PCGS Proof 69 Red Deep Cameo
A 1977-S Lincoln Cent certified by PCGS at Proof 69 Red with Deep Cameo. As of this writing PCGS had certified 1,868 of these pennies in Proof 69 Red Deep cameo while only a miniscule 12 pennies have been certified higher at the perfect 70 grade. Since only twelve collectors can have the best penny in their PCGS registry sets, you can expect to pay around 5 grand for the 70 graded coin. So most beginning collectors have to settle for this Proof 69 penny from 1977. Some day it looks like the prices between the 69 and 70 graded cents will have to equalize a little more. Any scratches or blemishes you might see in the picture are on the holder and not the coin itself. Please keep in mind that our pictures are magnified about 10 times, so this makes the slightest blemish look much worse than it actually is on the plastic slab. We have more than one of these 1977-S PCGS PR69RD DCAM Lincoln Cents in this grade available for sale at Brandywine General Store, so you might receive a different PCGS Certification number.
