If you began your collecting adventures by filling coin boards with Lincoln Cents, then this set will be very familiar to you. Basically, it’s a set of Lincoln Cents, complete with all years and every possible date and mintmark combination. Yes, this set does require the 1909-S VDB and the 1914-D, but there are some other unsung rarities that you’ll have to hunt for, as well (the 1911-S, 1914-S, 1920-S, 1924-D, 1924-S, 1926-S, and others). Nevertheless, just about any collector can participate in this set, as there are no ultra-rarities which make it impossible to achieve completion. You can start with one coin and work your way up, reliving along the way the excitement of your first days as a coin collector.

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