Don't miss this great opportunity to own 50 classic Lincoln Wheatie cents from the first year of 1909 through 1955! The Union Shield reverse is now here to stay, and collector interest in these original Lincoln “Wheatie” cents has soared.
For starters, this value-packed set brings you the first-year 1909 V.D.B. Lincoln cent. This was the original Lincoln cent design, with Victor D. Brenner's prominent initials on the reverse, before the mint removed them. Plus, you'll get all three P, D & S mint mark reprocessed wartime Steel cents issued for one year only in 1943 to save copper. The set includes 46 additional Lincoln "Wheaties" from the Philadelphia, Denver and San Francisco Mints – all over 60 years old. Along with your coins, you'll get two custom Littleton folders to organize and display your Lincoln cent collection.
In his Standard Guide to the Lincoln Cent published in 1983, Sol Taylor estimated that 99.99% of Lincolns dated before 1940 had been pulled from circulation. Now that the Memorial reverse has been replaced by the Union Shield, demand for early “Wheaties” will only continue to increase. Order this set today while these coins are still available, and SAVE off individual prices!
