Lincoln Wheat Cents (Year Varies). Lincoln Wheat Cents, also known as wheat pennies (for the ears of wheat on the coin’s reverse) or Lincoln pennies (for the bust of Abraham Lincoln on the coin’s obverse), were minted from 1909-1958. The coin was designed by Victor David Brenner. The 1909-S wheat cent with Brenner’s initials (V.D.B.) on the reverse is the rarest date and mintmark. Lincoln Wheat Cents were produced at the Philadelphia, San Francisco, and Denver mints. We have bags of 500 mixed date Lincoln Wheat Cents available for $26.50.
