Jaime Hernandez: The 1917-S Lincoln cent is one of the semi key dates in the wheat Lincoln Cent series. As it is, most San Francisco struck cents from the teens and twenties are very difficult to find in uncirculated grades and many times even in circulated grades. In circulated grades the 1917-S becomes a bit difficult to find in XF condition and higher.
