The 2009 Philadelphia mint coins were released in his birthplace, Hodgenville, Kentucky. The Denver mint coins were exceptionally hard to find since banks dont have them in stock, and t was no official point of release for them. Luckily, these coins in my auction were discovered and submitted to PCGS to obtrain the new and colorful Lincoln label, and also receive the elusive First Day of Issue designation.
