The year 1909 was a historic one for U.S. cents because two different designs were struck that year! The 1909 Lincoln Cent – struck during the first year of the Lincoln series to replace the “scandalous” 1909 V.D.B. Lincoln cent, this cent doesn’t bear the initials of designer Victor D. Brenner. Issued to honor the 100th anniversary of President Abraham Lincoln’s birth, its reverse features a pair of wheat ears to symbolize abundance. Each historic cent was struck at the Philadelphia Mint, comes in a protective holder and makes a great addition to a collection. Don’t delay – order right away!
