Why purchase this 3-Coin 1943-P+D+S Steel Lincoln Cent Set?
The U.S. Mint introduced the Lincoln Cent series in 1909, commemorating the centennial anniversary of Abraham Lincoln's birth. The coin is minted from a copper alloy, with the exception of 1943, when the U.S. government's copper supply was more urgently needed for the production of military equipment during the Second World War. As a result, the 1943 Lincoln Cents were crafted from steel, struck at the Philadelphia, Denver and San Francisco Mints.
Design of the Lincoln Cent by Victor David Brenner
Obverse: A right facing portrait of Abraham Lincoln is located on the obverse. The inscription "IN GOD WE TRUST" arches above, with "LIBERTY" at left, and the appropriate Mint mark beneath "1943" at right.
Reverse: The reverse features two stalks of wheat bending around the central inscriptions "ONE CENT" and "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA." The motto "E PLURIBUS UNUM" curves above. Mr. Brenner was a Lithuanian-born sculptor who emigrated to the U.S. in 1890. He is best known for medallic work, especially this design for the Lincoln Cent, which was chosen for the coin by President Theodore Roosevelt.
