Now, give one of the most controversial coins in numismatic history and its first-year replacement – the 1909 V.D.B. Wheat Ears Lincoln cent and the 1909 cent without initials!
Popular from the start, the original supply of about 27 million cents ran out in just 3 days! But controversy followed, with critics declaring that designer Victor D. Brenner’s initials were too large on the reverse. Production came to a halt, and new 1909 cents were struck, minus the offending initials. With this collector set, they’ll enjoy both first-year coins – the famed 1909 V.D.B. in Very Fine condition, and its replacement in Average Circulated. Two important Lincoln cents… one affordable price!
