Lincoln Wheat Cents (1909-1958) - During the Renaissance of rare coin designs Theodore Roosevelt pushed for the reissue of all U.S. coinage. The long standing Indian Cent issue was redesigned in recognition of the 100 year anniversary of Abraham Lincoln using his likeness on the obverse. The motif was the work of famed sculptor Victor David Brenner with his initials appearing along the reverse rim of first year issue examples. The obverse features the likeness of the famed President and the reverse was changed from the previous oak wreath to a pair of wheat stalks around the denomination spelled out ONE CENT. The issue was struck in bronze using .950 copper and .050 tin and zinc. The diameter is the same as previous small cents at 19 mm.
