1909 Lincoln 1C 2

The Lincoln cent, or most commonly called “penny”, started production in 1909. They have President Abraham Lincoln on the front which is where the name “Lincoln Cent” comes from. Starting with the first year of 1909 the penny has wheat ears on the back and is commonly called a “Wheat Back Penny”. They are made of bronze, which consists of 95% copper and 5% tin.

In 1909, there were pennies that were struck in San Francisco and Philadelphia that had the designer’s initials on the back of the penny at the bottom that read “V.D.B”, which stood for “Victor David Brenner”.

1794-silver-dollar

My introduction to numismatics began the “All-American” way in the mid 1970’s. A family friend gave me a Whitman folder for Lincoln Cents 1941 to date. Like millions of other kids before and since, I began to fill the holes in my album. In the 1970’s, finding most of the Lincoln cents for my budding collection was relatively easy. Every Friday after receiving my allowance, I would head to the bank for $5 worth of penny rolls. I repeated this process for months until my collection of 1941 to date Lincoln Cents was complete. Unfortunately, I lived in Florida, and… Full article at the source>

How To Get Started in Coin Collecting

Morgan Silver Dollar

I first became interested in coin collecting the old fashioned way in the late 1960’s. A family friend gave me a Whitman album for Lincoln Cents, 1941-to date. For some reason, the challenge of completing this small album became a full time pursuit for a budding, young numismatist. My parents would take me to the bank each week to purchase $5 dollars worth of penny rolls that would be searched and later traded for another batch of penny rolls. After several weeks of meticulous searching, my album neared completion. This is where things get interesting for most collectors. Some become Full article at the source>

Collecting on a modest budget still offers thrills

May 23, 2014 in Cents, Coin Dealers, Coins, Collecting, Copper Coins, Education, Numismatica, Numismatics, Quarters, US Mint, USA Coins

The Gold and Silver Mine By: Douglas Keefe. May 21st 2014. (www.shorenews.com)

Collecting coins doesn’t have to be an expensive endeavor (remember, I said collecting, not investing). There are many opportunities to collect United States coins on a modest budget.

One examples is Lincoln Cents starting from 1959, the year the design on the reverse of the coin changed from having two wheat stalks framing the words “One Cent” to the new design featuring the Lincoln Memorial. Although the earlier design with the wheat stalks, which were minted from 1909 until 1958, have virtually disappeared from circulation, the cents with the Lincoln Memorial are plentiful. So if someone wanted to start collecting these cents, they could purchase one of those inexpensive blue coin albums that have holes for each date and mint and then start going through their coins to try to fill all the openings in the album.
