As a kid back in the 1960s I remember occasionally getting these coins in change from time to time and what a thrill it was. Our current one cent coin features Lincoln on the obverse and he’s been featured on the coin sine 1909!
This coin is in about uncirculated condition as it shows just a few traces of wear and there’s even some nice toning going on.

I got one of these in my change in 1985! Still have it.

It’s always fun to still find an older coin. Lots of 1940s nickels still floating around even some with good mint marks too.
