1912 LINCOLN WHEAT CENT

NO RESERVE

Welcome fellow eBayer! This auction features the 1912 Lincoln Cent from Philadelphia. As you probably know, the Lincoln Wheat Cent began its long run a few years earlier. Victor David Brenner designed the coin to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Lincoln’s birth. His initials (VDB) were placed on the reverse for a short time before they were removed. His initials would reappear more inconspicuously beginning in 1918. It was the first US cent to have the motto “IN GOD WE TRUST”. The series ended its run in 1958 before the reverse was changed the following year to the Lincoln Memorial design.

The 1912 Philadelphia cent featured here was acquired for my collection in February, 2005 as a Choice Uncirculated piece. This coin has Red Brown surfaces on both sides. On the obverse, there are scattered tiny scratches, a few carbon spots and a three rim nicks. The reverse has scattered tiny scratches and there are thumb prints.
