That would count some toward prices... The 09S VDB with only 484,000 should be the most valuable in any grade??? I never heard of a 1922P??? I thought they were only minted in Denver in 1922 that's why we get the 22 no D/weak D varieties???
    Jim, the whole point above is that mintage alone does not mean most valuable in any grade. All of those coins in the list cost much more than an S-VDB in high grades. Reason being..... less S-VDBs were made but it was a first year off issue so people were likely to put an example away so high grades exist so you can find a high grade red for 4-5K plus in circ grades people knew from Whitman folders it was rare so they saved circs long ago but those other coins had no reason to be saved in high grades so less exist so they can be 10K-20K+++ in super high red grades or almost none exist in the highest grades, nobody figured that they were that special to keep in high grades. But in low grades, stuff with 2-5 million minted do exist and tend to be like $20+ semi keys in circ grades.

    1922 P is only the ones with no trace of a D, like you said they really are D mint coins. Crazy price because few were made that way plus they did put a spot for it in the folder. Other than that it's simply a filled or polished away D. I suspect that for some other years mintmarks might have been polished away or clogged but for almost every other year there is a plain so the ones polished off or clogged just get no attention like the regular plains from those years.
