The Lincoln Wheat Ears Penny is a classic coin that has been out of issue for more than half a century. The Lincoln Penny was first minted in 1909 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln’s birth. The obverse features a portrait of Lincoln by sculptor Victor D. Brenner.
It was the first circulating U.S. coin to feature a real person instead of Lady Liberty. All coins until 1958 have the legendary and coveted “Wheat Ears” reverse design.
This is a full half-pound of classic Lincoln Wheat Ears Pennies. All coins are dated between 1909 and 1958, so they are up to 100 years old and more. The coins come in a canvas bag. There is a great variety of dates and mint marks, so this is a wonderful way to start or add to a collection of Lincoln Pennies. Since the last coin was struck in 1958, the value of copper has risen by about 2,000%.
No specific dates or mint marks are guaranteed, but the bag may contain sought-after dates and mint marks. Each bag is different, so order several for a greater selection.
