Why add the 1955-S Lincoln Cent NGC MS66+ RD to your collection?

  • The coin earned NGC's Red (RD) color designation.

  • The issue features a mintage of 44,610,000 coins.
  • This is the final Wheat Cent struck at the San Francisco Mint.

A President in Circulation

Obverse: The obverse features the first image of an actual person on a circulating U.S. coin: President Abraham Lincoln as designed by Victor David Brenner.

Reverse: The "Wheat Back" reverse gives us the popular name assigned by collectors young and old. Two wheat stalks form a wreath around the inscriptions "One Cent" and "United States of America." The "E Pluribus Unum" motto divides the top of the stalks.


The MS66 grade means that it is a high quality coin with few distractions, beguiling mint luster and eye appeal and a full strike, while NGC assigns a plus sign (+) behind the grade to coins at the high end of their grade. These coins have some characteristics required for the next grade higher. The Red (RD) designation signifies that a coin has not reacted as harshly with ambient chemicals as their brown counterparts and have avoided discoloration and darkening. They still posses their full mint red luster.
