History, Information, and Value of 1985-D Lincoln Memorial Cent

Value of 1985-D Lincoln Memorial Cent

The 1985-D Lincoln Memorial Cent is common and available in all grades. Most of these coins face up very well and have a pleasing appearance. A large mint mark was used this year to represent the Denver Mint. It is common to see a coin with a sharp strike. There was an error in 1985 that occurred because of a zinc coating bath being contaminated. Because of that, the 1985-D had some coins that were copper plated with 90% copper rather than the normal 100% copper.

The text on the Lincoln one cent coin reads as follows. Obverse: LIBERTY; Date; IN GOD WE TRUST; D (Denver) | Reverse: UNITED STATES OF AMERICA; E PLURIBUS UNUM; ONE CENT.
