More than a century ago, in 1909, Americans lined up, excitedly waiting for their chance to get the new cent honoring Abraham Lincoln. It had not yet been 45 years since the end of the Civil War, and some could still remember his presidency.
Not long after the coin’s debut, critics came out against designer Victor D. Brenner’s initials on the reverse. Within days of its release, production was halted and new coins were created without the initials – creating a short-lived, yet highly sought-after variety! With Littleton’s informative 5˝ x 3˝ Showpak®, you’ll hold the story of this controversial little coin, plus own a historic 1909 V.D.B. Lincoln cent. Though these genuine coins don’t meet industry grading standards, they offer an affordable way to own this desirable classic. Get yours now!
