 LINCOLN TYPE

    This is the most popular collector set in America. Please note that we have in most circulated grades all dates and mints of the classic Lincoln Cent type series except, for the moment, the 1914-D.  We can get one of these however for you.  You will find below three of the most rare Lincoln Cents of all, the the 1909-S VDB, 1922 Plain, and the 1955 double die (two examples).  Please send your want list to us for all dates of this series. (wantlists@coinsinternational.com)   We also have many dates in Uncirculated condition starting from the 1940s.  We have selected some modest or inexpensive early dates in harder to get dates/mints for the collector seeking affordable coins as well as some very scarce and desirable high grade coins for the advanced collector.  Especially look below at the key to the entire series, the 1922 Plain (no D) which is in high grade and is one of the most difficult coins to find in any dealer list.  We will continue to advertise a wide range of coins for every kind of collector, young starter to advanced.  Please note we have several partial collections of the Lincoln Cent type in old Albums, which we are selling as a group, those collections contain may key dates that are not normally found in most such collections, see below. We do not stock BU current cents starting from 1980s.

SETS OF LINCOLN CENTS:

    We have a number of partial sets of Lincoln Cents: 

(1) One that perhaps is the best both for a young collector and for a new collector who wants to get a head start on this series with many cents not found now in circulation. It is in an early green Whitman Album covering 1909 to 1972.  It is missing about 12 of the earlier dates/mints only (1909-S VDB, 1911-S, 1912-S, 1912-D, 1914-S and D, 1915-S, 1922- Plain and D, 1928-P, and 1931-D) It has almost all of the other scarce dates and condition goes from G-VG to Unc.  Many of the earlier coins are in high grade since this is from a very old collection.  It contains coins from scarce dates like the 1909-S ( a $100.00 plus value),  1924-D which is worth at least $40.00 alone, as well as the 1931-S, worth $130.00 or more.  It also has a 1910-S & 1913-S.   These are not normally found in many such sets.  The price for the set is $379.00, plus shipping, which is much below the full retail value of the entire set.

(2) We have another set in an old quality National Album pages (plastic on both sides) from 1909 to 1964. This is another old collector set that was put together, like the previous, starting in the 1950s and some of the earlier coins are in Uncirculated condition, but this set is somewhat more expensive than the earlier one above, but a very fine set for a collector to have since it can be completed with the latter dates easily.  It too is missing some of the key dates, but it also contains many sought after dates/mints.  Your full satisfaction is guaranteed for both sets.  Price On Request (POR).

INDIVIDUAL LINCOLN CENTS:  

1909-P VDB LINCOLN CENT, ANACS MS-66 RED, premium gem, with frosty mint blazing fresh full red and satin surfaces. They rarely get much better. For example,  a few  years ago  PCGS/ANACS/NGC had graded very few higher, and only at MS-67.   If you are putting together a set of gem mint red examples of Lincoln cents, this is the coin of choice. $1,000.00.    (Years ago we sold an extraordinary MS-67 Red for $700.00, now worth $2,000.00, and this beauty is only a hair's breath apart.  We also have a  1909-P VDB, ANACS MS-65 Red, Gem Bright "mint red" coin. Only  $235.00

1909-S VDB, LINCOLN CENT, On of three top key coin date and mint combinations as noted above. Our's is a very nice high grade circulated XF-45 Brown, in a NGC slab with very clean surfaces in terms of any nicks, etc. Hints of mint luster along rims. Reverse very strongly stuck.  A coin you would be proud to show to any advanced collector.  This coin is listed in Coin Values July 2010 issue at XF-40  at $1,400.00 and at $1,500.00 in Coin Market in July 2010.  Ours at a higher XF-45 NGC is just $1,385.00.v 

1909-S, LINCOLN CENT, ANACS MS-64 Red. This is a near Gem coin. This coin is listed in Coin Values July 2010 issue at $750.  Ours is just $725.00. 

1910-S, Fine, $26.90

1911-D Good $5.75

1911-S, Fine $49.90

1912-D, Good $6.85

1913-S, VF/XF $40.00

1915-S Very Fine $32.75

1922 "Plain" NO "D" LINCOLN CENT, AU-50 (ANACS).  Die Pair 2, the scarcer "strong reverse." This example has a strong full date unlike many such cents of this type.  Still has hints of mint red around devices.  This is one of the hardest Lincoln cents to obtain and is especially difficult this nice.  Pure plain 1922s are estimated to come from only a few thousand of the last coins minted. This is an above average coin for its grade. Priced reasonable and right at $5,100.00 with the ANACS slab. (A recent advertised slabbed AU-50 was selling for $8,100.00 and Coin World's "Coin Values" puts the retail price at $6,000.) No discounts.

This classic rarity Lincoln, in XF, was characterized some two decades ago in the Coin Dealer Newsletter (11/93 Monthly Supplement) as one of the great investment coins over the last decade.  Many top auctions are without this tough date let alone in higher grades.

1922-D LINCOLN CENT, MS-64 RED BROWN (ANACS). Obverse is almost completely red and reverse mostly red with slight hint of brown toning.  No visible distracting marks or spots. A 65RB goes for about $750.00.  This one in MS-RB-64 only $255.00 . 

1931-S, LINCOLN CENT ANACS  GEM MS-65 Red-Brown. Again a gem coin, almost all deep red, a key date.  $480.00 

PROOF LINCOLN CENT, 1938, GRADED BY ANACS PROOF-60 Red-Brown. Proof issues of this period were minted in very limited quantities (14,734). (945955) $30.00

PROOF LINCOLN CENT, 1940, GRADED BY ANACS PROOF-60 Red-Brown. Proof issues of this period were minted in very limited quantities. $30.00

1955-P CENT DOUBLE DIE OBVERSE, ANACS AU-55, shows some deep original red. Another one of the "classic" rare Lincoln varieties, with Breen estimating only 20,000+ minted and Forman 17,000. PCGS cites only 25,000. The grading services have only graded these coins in the hundreds, not thousands. This is a highly popular type listed in the Red Book and now considered scarce in high grades. Prices are going up. Coin Values has this coin at $2,200.00 in its July edition recent auction prices have been higher than our price.  Ours right for the grade in every way, just $2,050.00

 

1955-P CENT DOUBLE DIE OBVERSE, ANACS AU-50, just below the above, shows still some deep original red. Another of the "classic" rare Lincoln varieties, with Breen estimating only 20,000+ minted and Forman 17,000. PCGS cites only 25,000. The grading services have only graded these coins in the hundreds, not thousands. This is a highly popular type listed in the Red Book and now considered scarce in high grades. Ours below Coin Values July quote of $2,000.00 at $1,800.00.

1972-P DOUBLE DIE OBVERSE, ANACS MS-63 RED, Breen 2265. Estimates are that 75,000 of these types released. This is the major doubled die variety I, only fault is a few darker very small spots on reverse, otherwise, obverse quality is frosty red and higher than graded. Another variety that is listed in the Red Book. A reasonable price at $700.00
