Collectors love “firsts”. With this inviting set, you’ll own 3 historic first-year coins… each with its own hint of controversy!
- 1909 V.D.B. Lincoln Cent – This new cent was so popular, people lined up for blocks to get it! But outcry over the prominence of designer Victor D. Brenner’s initials put the coin on hold until they could be removed.
- 1948 Franklin Half Dollar – Struck in 90% silver, this handsome coin was loved by the public. But after just 16 years, the Franklin series was cut short in favor of the Kennedy half.
- 1878 Morgan Silver Dollar – The 90% silver Morgan dollar had a rocky start. First its eagle featured 8 tail feathers, then 7 after debate over whether an eagle could fly with an even number of tail feathers. Your coin features the 7 Tail Feathers reverse from the first year of issue.
All three coins come to you in attractive yet affordable condition, plus you’ll SAVE off individual coin prices. Order today!
