Apologies beforehand because the reverse photo is the best quality available.

It has been approximately 2 days, 1 hour, 5 minutes and 47 seconds since I posted this coin, so I am now closing it out.

CCF members were far off in agreement with PCGS on this one.

PCGS MS 65 RD

CAC agrees with PCGS

I have never seen PCGS lower a grade on a rare-date\mint Lincoln for the presence of carbon spots\haze; I have seen PCGS lower grades routinely on Lincoln proofs for the presence of bad or poorly removed carbon spots.

With the chatter in the field out in front of Lincoln's face, I can see why many thought it is only MS-63.

The color on this 26-D Lincoln is spot-on RD. I've owned (2) 26-D Lincolns in RD [on in 64 and another in 65] and this one is in agreement with the color.

Myself, because of the carbon, I would not purchase this one even though I know it is rare. And there's no room for a "surface doctor" to conserve it to a higher price.

I absolutely agree with you...not as a MS-65.

it may be a 65RD but pricewise I wouldnt pay more than 63 $$ for it. way too much discoloration and marks across the cheek bone and lapel. just on eye appeal alone it doesn't make the grade.

This particular coin is priced at $4,350, and it will sell. Perhaps not at the ask price, but nevertheless someone will buy it.

There are other specimens that do not have spots, priced from $3,000 to $5,000 and they will sell too.

A nice RB sample, that is far superior looking to this one is priced at $1,500. Myself, I'd buy it over all the others.

The demand for rare date Lincoln cents is crazy. A good looking 1926-S - the rare brother to the 26-D, the rarest condition Lincoln, one with really good eye appeal - in 65 RD will sell for as much as $200,000. There's like 20 guys with really deep pockets just lined up salivatin' to buy a 1926-S - IF - they can find one to buy. Did you ever imagine that you would see a Lincoln cent sell for 6 figures ?

There was a pleasing 26-S in MS 65 BN. It had nice eye appeal and the person who pounced on it at $5,000 was prescient to do so. I can imagine a nice RB selling in the mid-tens-of-thousands.

The spots look indented almost, especially the upper one on the obverse...is that a delamination?
