Why Add This MS66 1943 Lincoln Cent to Your Collection?
The Lincoln cent is quite an interesting coin. While the design has changed several times, the first Lincoln cents were struck by the U.S. Mint in 1909. This Lincoln cent was struck at the Philadelphia Mint in 1943. There were 684,628,670 of these minted. However, what makes the 1943 Lincoln cents stand out from others is the fact that they're made of steel due to a wartime shortage of copper.
Classic Designs by Brenner
The original design for the Lincoln cent was created by Victor David Brenner. The obverse shows Brenner's finely detailed portrait of Abraham Lincoln. The date is displayed on this side next to Lincoln. Since it was struck in Philadelphia, it does not have a mintmark.
The face value can be found on the reverse. This side features a wheat ear design. In addition to the face value, the reverse is also inscribed with "E PLURIBUS UNUM" and "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA."
