The last twenty five years of the Lincoln wheat ear cent meet in our unique collection. Designed by Victor Brenner in honour of the 100th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln's birth and first to display the image of an actual person, this historical penny was introduced in 1909. Ours are dated from 1934 to 1958. This exquisite collection includes the rare and beautiful Lincoln Steel Cent which was only minted in the year 1943 as copper was needed for the war effort. With the exception of the 1943 Lincoln Steel Cent, these Lincoln wheat ear pennies were minted of 95% copper.
