The last cent struck at San Francisco during the Lincoln’s first year was the 1909-S Wheatie without initials. At the beginning of the year, the mint had struck Indian Head cents, then the coveted 1909-S V.D.B. Lincoln cent, and finally the scarce 1909-S, minus the initials. Now you can own the scarce 1909-S issue without initials, along with its Philadelphia counterparts – the 1909 V.D.B. and the 1909 with no initials.

Minted to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Lincoln’s birth, the new cent drew tremendous interest and in just 3 days, supplies ran out! But controversy soon arose over the size of the designer’s initials. So just days after the 1909 V.D.B.’s release, the coin was replaced with a new “more respectable” issue without the initials. San Francisco minted just over 1.8 million, creating the scarce 1909-S Lincoln – a famous key date. Don’t miss your opportunity to add this very popular key date along with the Philadelphia first-year Wheaties to your collection. Supplies are limited, so act fast!
