Lincoln Wheat Cents are one of the most widely collected rare coin types. As rare coin dealers, Lincoln Wheat Cents represent the entire range of collecting from casual penny collectors to serious numismatists collecting high grade coins certified by PCGS and NGC. Designed by Victor D. Brenner to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln's birth, his initials appear on the reverse of some of the 1909 and 1909-S cents. This caused a public outcry and later that year, the coins were re-issued without the V.D.B. on the reverse. As a result the 1909-S V.D.B. Lincoln Cent is one of the rarest and most collectible cents in American history.

In 1943, as a result of the copper drives to support World War II, the cent was minted in Zinc-coated steel. While incredibly popular amount penny collectors then and now, nearly 400 million were minted and many remain in high grade. With the exception of about five dates, the entire Lincoln Wheat Cent series is readily available to collectors in mid to high grades. Red copper cents can often command a substantial premium as fewer remain. The most collectible coins of the series include the 1909-S VDB cent, 1909-S cent, 1914-D cent, 1922-D (no D) cent and the 1931-S.
