The Denver Mint struck its first Lincoln cents in 1911, and today, over a century later, early “D” mint coins are eagerly sought after by collectors. You can add those early branch mint issues with this 10-coin Lincoln Wheatie cent set with dates ranging from 1915-1932, and including three early issues from the teens.
When these early Wheatie cents 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 the Lincoln cent specialist Sol Taylor published his 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 grow harder to find. So don’t wait to get this 10-coin set of “D” Mint Wheaties and SAVE.
