Ron Guth: The 1923 Lincoln Cent boasts a high mintage of over 74 million coins, which is substantially higher than the 1921, but still below every other P-Mint date from the 1920's.  Fortunately, there are plenty of nice, Mint State examples for collectors to choose from, including hundreds of MS-64 and MS-65 examples in full Red.  Superb examples (meaning those in MS-67RD) are rare, and the finest example certified by PCGS is a single MS-68RD.  Being from the Philadelphia Mint, this date comes well-struck and well-made, so choose examples that are as red and as spot-free as possible.,
