History, Information, and Value of 1990-S "No S" Lincoln Memorial Cent
Value of 1990-S “No S” Lincoln Memorial Cent
The 1990-S “No S” Lincoln Memorial Cent is a rarity in the modern era. This coin was created with the absence of the San Francisco mint mark. Done by error, this coin now brings a large premium. The error occurred when a mintmark-less circulation die was polished and put into use. Keep in mind that the Philadelphia Mint was still enlisting the help of the San Francisco Mint to produce “P” Lincoln pennies. According to current estimations, there are around 250 Lincoln Cents from this year that do not have their mintmark. If you think you may have one of these coins, please contact our experts, or have them put you in touch with one of our coin dealer contacts.
The text on the Lincoln one cent coin reads as follows. Obverse: LIBERTY; Date; IN GOD WE TRUST | Reverse: UNITED STATES OF AMERICA; E PLURIBUS UNUM; ONE CENT.
