1938-D - ?

#1 Unread post by muswell65 »

Continuing to sort through my Dad's collection - unfortunately he's not available for questions :(

A tube of 1938-D Lincolns - why? (FDR is just keeping the Abes from rolling)

There are 2 at the top which might be AUish, but the rest are typical circulation. After a cursory online check, nothing seems special, other than a marginally lower mintage?

Was it the year he or someone was born ? They average about $ in average circulating condition and about $3 in AU -50 . So, I guess you'll be busy . I recommend a book for grading your coins .

Interesting suggestion on the birth year, Sal! Just missed - he was born in '37 ;)

Thanks also for the recommendation about books on grading. I'll definitely look into that. I find it a fascinating topic - it must take years to develop. On that topic, I'll be watching for feedback from the experts on the 1921 Lincoln in your other thread.
