This 1930 Penny is all class. And at this quality level, a great rarity. The coin is graded nearly Very Fine with an almost complete central diamond and six strong pearls. The upper and lower scrolls are strong. The circular beading crisp. Even toning and smooth fields add further to its appeal. And web watchers will note the infrequent appearances on the Coinworks website of 1930 Pennies at this high quality level: a reflection of the scarcity of premium quality examples.
