The coin pictured is the exact coin you will receive. No scans, photoshop, or stock photos. This is what the coin looks like sitting on my table. Beautiful luster on this coin. Please see pics. Very nice high grade Lincoln Wheat penny. Special label pedigree. This coin was retrieved from the Omaha Bank Hoard.
The Omaha Bank Hoard is said to have contained several thousand rolls of coins hand picked for gem quality by a collector who wished to remain obscure. What is amazing is that the collection spans almost 50 years from the early 30s through around 1980. The only complete set is the 1946-64 Silver Rosies. Others remain incomplete for unknown reasons. From an economic standpoint, introduction of these coins led to marked distortion in population figures as many issues became rather common in gem quality once these coins became available. There are around 300 different dates/denominations available with this pedigree. This set is limited to the earlier issues extending through the early 1960s.
