A key issue to completion of a high-grade Lincoln Cent collection, the 1926-S is seldom offered with full Red surfaces. This is just such a near-Gem, however both sides with original autumn-orange color. Bold-to-sharp in strike, with a satiny texture that even reveals glints of modest semi-reflectivity in the fields at isolated angles. There are no sizeable or otherwise individually distracting blemishes to report. An important coin that represents the finest in quality that is realistically obtainable for this very challenging S-mint issue.
