|Elongated coins have been popular collectibles since their introduction at the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago. This elongated cent is from the Republic of China Exhibit at the 1933 Chicago World’s Fair and has been graded MS65RB by NGC. The host coin is a 1920 Lincoln Cent and the date and parts of the profile of Lincoln and are visible on the reverse side. This elongated cent has been cataloged as M&D-22 which is also denoted on the NGC label. There are no noticeable issues or distractions on this piece. The color is attractive with lots of original red and the piece is lustrous with a well-defined design. An excellent example of this elongated cent from the 1933
Century of Progress Exposition.
Because of the difficulty in capturing the overall look of the coin in a single image, I have also included a short high-definition video of the coin towards the bottom of this listing in an attempt to give you a better idea of what this coin will look like in hand. Please note that you may need to adjust the video quality to 1080p and may need to increase the size of the video to full screen in order to see the coin in maximum detail.
