This is the Basic Set of Lincoln Cent Proofs plus all of the most important, collectible varieties, all of which were made after 1959. Included are the Small and Large Dates of 1960 and 1970 (and even the unusual Large/Small and Small/Large dates of 1960), the rare Double Die Obverse of 1971, the Type 1 and Type 2 Proofs of 1979 and 1981, and the odd and rare 1990 that lacks the mintmark. From the early Matte Proofs (with their unusual, sandblast appearance) to the gorgeous, modern Cameo Proofs, these are coins that are always beautiful and sometimes rare. As of the time this was written, none of the top sets was 100% complete, which is an unusual situation in this hotly contested area. Maybe you can be the first person to achieve this lofty goal.
Notes: This set has bonuses. Please see the Set Composition for a listing.
