The Denver Mint struck its first Lincoln cents in 1911, and today, early "D" mint coins are eagerly sought 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 issued, most went right into circulation and eventually wore out or were lost. It was not until the penny board debuted in the late 1920s that date and mint mark collecting started. By 1983, when Lincoln cent specialist Sol Taylor published his Standard Guide to the Lincoln Cent, he estimated 99.99% of all Lincolns dated before 1940 had been pulled from circulation. Early Wheaties grow scarcer each year, so don't wait to SAVE on this set of 10 "D" Mint Wheaties!
