Iconic Lincoln Design by Brenner

On the obverse, Victor David Brenner's classic portrait of Abraham Lincoln is displayed. This side is inscribed with "IN GOD WE TRUST," "LIBERTY," and the date. A high level of detail can be seen on Lincoln's face and suit.

The upper portion of the reverse is inscribed with "E PLURIBUS UNUM." Just below this, the face value is displayed. A wheat ear can be seen on each side of the face value.


Since this Lincoln cent is a copper coin, it was given a color designation as part of certification. It received the Red designation because it has a rich original mint color. It was found to be in gem uncirculated condition and was awarded the grade of Mint State 66.
