This ultra-popular set is being broken down into two different collections for the new edition of the PCGS Set Registry. The first category covers the "wheatback" era, with its magic key dates of the 1909-S V.D.B. and 1914-D, the always intriguing and sometimes controversial 1922 "Plain," and the newly recognized condition rarity 1926-S, among many others. From the childhood days of the blue coin boards (or albums) when rolls and rolls of Lincoln cents were searched looking for "anything that was old" until today, the early date Lincoln cents magnify the joys of coin collecting and bring back a rush of memories.

Notes: This set has bonuses. Please see the Set Composition for a listing.
