The Denver Mint struck its very first Lincoln cent in 1911, and today, over a century later, early “D” mint coins are eagerly sought after by collectors. Now you can add those early branch mint issues with this 10-coin Lincoln Wheatie set with dates ranging from 1912-1932. You’ll get the semi-key 1912-D (a scarcer issue, one that only 1 in 14 collectors can ever hope to own), plus nine other low-mintage coins.
When these early Wheaties were minted, most went right into circulation, because it wasn’t until the advent of the penny board in the late 1920s that date and mint mark collecting started. And by 1983, when Lincoln cent specialist Sol Taylor wrote the Standard Guide to the Lincoln Cent, he estimated that 99.99% of all Lincolns dated before 1940 had been pulled from circulation. With each passing year, early Wheat Ear cents will only continue to grow harder to find. So don’t wait to get this “D” Mint Wheatie set!
