  • Description:

    The Lincoln Wheat Cent series, spanning from 1910 to 1919, represents a pivotal era in American numismatic history. These copper coins, featuring the iconic portrait of President Abraham Lincoln on the obverse and two wheat stalks flanking the denomination on the reverse, hold a special place in the hearts of collectors and enthusiasts alike.

    Introduced in 1909 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Lincoln's birth, the Lincoln Wheat Cent quickly gained popularity among the American public. Designed by sculptor Victor David Brenner, the obverse of the coin showcases a detailed bust of Lincoln facing right, with the inscription "IN GOD WE TRUST" above and the year of mintage below.

    The reverse of the coin features two wheat stalks framing the words "ONE CENT" and the motto "E PLURIBUS UNUM." This design, commonly referred to as the "wheat ears reverse," symbolizes America's agricultural heritage and has become synonymous with the Lincoln Cent series.

    During the 1910s, Lincoln Wheat Cents were minted at three main United States Mint facilities: Philadelphia, Denver, and San Francisco. The Philadelphia Mint, as the primary minting facility, produced the highest number of coins, followed by Denver and San Francisco, which contributed to smaller mintages.

    Throughout the 1910s, the mintage figures for Lincoln Wheat Cents varied from year to year and mint to mint. Factors such as demand, available resources, and technological advancements influenced production numbers, leading to differences in rarity and collectibility among various issues.

    Condition-wise, Lincoln Wheat Cents from the 1910s typically exhibit signs of wear consistent with circulation. Coins in circulated condition may show varying degrees of wear on both the obverse and reverse, including smoothing of details and loss of luster.

    Some coins may also display surface marks, scratches, or discoloration, which are common traits of coins that have seen use in commerce. Despite these signs of wear, Lincoln Wheat Cents from the 1910s retain their historical significance and collectible appeal.

    Collectors often seek to assemble complete sets of Lincoln Wheat Cents spanning the entire decade of the 1910s. Acquiring a bulk quantity of 1000 pieces provides enthusiasts with ample opportunities to fill gaps in their collections, trade with other collectors, or simply enjoy the thrill of owning a piece of numismatic history.
