Why purchase this 3-Coin 1943-P+D+S Steel Lincoln Cent Set?
The U.S. Mint's Lincoln Cent series was introduced in 1909 to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of Abraham Lincoln's birth. With the exception of 1943, the series has been minted with a copper alloy. During the Second World War, the Mint's supply of copper was diverted to the war effort for the production of military equipment and ammunition for the country's armed forces. Without access to copper, the Mint resorted to steel as the base metal for the 1943 releases of the Lincoln Cent.
The Lincoln Cent Design by Victor David Brenner
Obverse: Abraham Lincoln is depicted on the obverse. Inscribed "IN GOD WE TRUST," "LIBERTY," "1943" and the appropriate Mint mark.
Reverse: The inscriptions "ONE CENT" and "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" are centered on the reverse, between two wheat stalks, with "E PLURIBUS UNUM" above. Sculptor Victor David Brenner emigrated to the U.S. from Lithuania in 1890. In addition to the imagery of the Lincoln Cent, Mr. Brenner is also credited with the design for the New York Public Library's seal in 1909. The rarely used seal features a female personification of wisdom.
