The aesthetics, how the 1930 Penny looks to the naked eye, is an important part of the selection process.
The reason is simply that the 1930 Penny was minted by accident and no one knew of its existence until at least ten years after it was issued.
Which means that the coins were used, with the majority well used, before collectors discovered its very being, enduring the rigours of being handled, mishandled, dropped, scratched and rattling around in change.
Which is why Coinworks applies strict protocols in the selection of 1930 Pennies to offer our clients.
We reject coins that have massive edge knocks or gouges. And we don't like coins that have significant scratches. Which is why we always suggest you buy a 1930 Penny " that you would be proud to show your family and friends"
