United States Lincoln Head One Cent Coin.

Lincoln Cents is the United State's longest-running coin series. It replaced the Indian Head Penny in 1909 and is still being produced today.

It features a bust of Abraham Lincoln designed by Victor David Brenner "VDB" who had sculpted a bronze plaque of the late President Lincoln several years earlier.

The first coins produced in 1909 contained Mr. Brenner's initials "VDB" near the bottom of the coin.
The letter below the date on the coin indicates the Mint: S,San Francisco;D,Denver;no letter,Philadelphia.

I found this Lincoln Head Cent Collection Coin Folder, made in USA,published by Whiteman Publishing Company,Racine,Wisconsin.No:9030. in Amcorp Mall,Petaling Jaya,Selangor, the month of May,2011.

This coin  folder consist of four pages,first page to third page are with holes,and there are all together 88 holes.
Starting with year 1941,below the dates are the total numbers of mintage.
Included are the 1943  Zinc-Coated Steel one cent coin.from three Mint factories.

The holes in this folder have a special,positive LOCK-IN features.
Place the cent with one edge tipped into the the high edge downward and toward the lowered edge (slantwise).Feel the snap?
It's locked in!

The empty holes are those not yet fill in.
If you are generous enough,you are most welcome to fill up those holes!

Most of the coins in the holes are not in mint condition.
I will like to take the challenge of replacing them to UNC in condition.
Everybody  are welcome to contribute!


  1. Hi Dickson,
    Apart from this folder for wheat cents, we've encountered others too.
    Folders for New Zealand Florins 1933-1964, by Donsco Venice, California and Canadian nickels 1922-1956 by Whitman Publishing Co.
    Though they look nostalgic but its a pity only one side of the coin can be seen.
    Thanks a lot for sharing, Dickson :)

  2. Dear whycollect,
    I don't really prefer this way of keeping my coins,beside only one side of the coin can be seen,the coins can be easily aged and toned badly.
    Happy week end!

  3. Hi Dickson,
    Ya, you are right.
    It fact we were taken aback when we took out the Canadian nickels from the folder that we've acquired.
    All looked ok during the point of purchase but we made a mistake by not taking out the coins to check their reverse.
    Later back at home when we took them out from the folder, almost all of them have verdigre spots on the reverse.
    Since then, we feel these type of folders apart from being nostalgic, are as bad if not worse than the PVC folders.
    Definitely not a preferred choice for us.
    Thanks a lot, Dickson :)
