The last twenty-five years (1934-1958) of the Lincoln wheat ear cent meet in our unique collection. Designed by Victor Brenner in 1909 in honor of the 100th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln's birth, the wheat ear cent was the first to display the image of an actual person. With the exception of the rare and beautiful Lincoln Steel Cent (which was minted in 1943 in place of the copper needed for the war effort), each wheat ear penny is minted of 95% copper. Includes a Certificate of Authenticity.
Lincoln Wheat Penny Collection Contains pennies from the last 25 years the Wheat Ear Cent was minted Certificate of Authenticity included Mounted on a display card featuring Lincoln's image Made in USA
Comments about Product: The collection is a bit disappointing for me. The penny's are not quite in mint condition, very dirty and difficult to read the dates. I think they could be cleaner had they been rubbed with a soft cloth before shipping. You do have to put each penny in the holder, so plan to wash your hands. The steel penny is very shiny, certainly not like the ones in my collections. All the penny's included, but with random mint locations. I think the presentation would have been better with the coins in the slot vs me adding. The steel penny really does not stay in the circular holder, that should be addressed on future shipments. Also, mint location, ship either from SF or Philadelphia and advertise the shipment that way. Thank you.
