Why purchase this 1955-S Bronze Lincoln Wheat Cent?

The Lincoln Cent was introduced in 1909 in honor of the 100th Anniversary of President Abraham Lincoln's birth, struck with an image of Lincoln still in use today, making it the longest-running design of any U.S. circulation coinage. The original reverse Wheat Cent design was struck for the first fifty years of the series until it was replaced by the Lincoln Memorial design in 1959. This Lincoln Cent is among a mintage of 44,610,000 struck at the San Francisco Mint in 1955 from a composition of 95% copper, 5% tin and 5% zinc.

Lincoln Wheat Cent Design by Victor David Brenner

The obverse features the right-facing image of Abraham Lincoln. The inscription "IN GOD WE TRUST" sweeps above, with "LIBERTY" and "1955 S" flanking the image.

Two curving stalks of wheat are depicted on the reverse, framing the centered inscriptions "E PLURIBUS UNUM," "ONE CENT" and "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA."

1955-S penny
Not happy that I received something that was not what I asked for, being that this MS-66 was not an Ms-66 and had to return it.
However I know it wasn't MCMs fault is an error on PCGS , but MCM was great with the exchange and Barry McCarty called and was really great he went beyond what needed to be done to make me a 100% satisfied customer.
Thank you to Barry McCarty and Modern Coin Mart for fixing this issue.
