About this set: I have collected Lincoln cents since youth and have always had a fondness for both the series and design. Initially, I saved coins from change and searched many bags of parking meter pennies to fill those many holes in my Whitman. I was one of the fortunate that was able to assemble a complete set from circulation by the time I was 18, this being done with help from my brother who also still actively collects. Over the past several years, my interest in the higher grade Lincoln’s has been sparked which has defined my goal of assembling a solid set including varieties. While it is impossible to recognize all those who have helped in this endeavor, Ira Stein stands out as being my single most important asset. He has provided invaluable counsel and assisted me in the procurement of many of the coins contained here. He has also been a friend to me as well as to the hobby. This collection is a logical spin-off of my basic 1909-58 circulation strikes set. I have never been a dedicated varieties collector but felt that my collection should include at least the most significant coins from this category. My belief is that collections should be shared and as time permits, I hope to post images of at least portions of the set for those interested.
