Sales History


The 1935 penny is one of the more common dates in the series in high grades, being one of the last dates of the series, second only to the 1936, many were hoarded for being different after the Kangaroo reverse was introduced into circulation in 1938. This makes the coin relatively common in AU or better. In addition, the coin is generally well struck up and often features a reflective, proof-like finish, not to be confused with the proof strikes which feature an intense mirror finish, which aids in the abundance of higher grade examples though the date is still only known by one example above MS64 (PCGS Population Report, 2011) .
