The first year of issue for Lincoln cents, this particular coin was minted after the first week of production. Chief engraver Charles Barber instructed the VDB initials be removed from the reverse design of the coin. All Lincoln cents minted after the first week of August are of this design making them more plentiful than those with the VDB initials on the reverse.

Because this item is of an issue and condition for which a general stock image is prudent, that is what is shown here. The exact coin you will receive in ordering this item will vary somewhat from what you see here, but it will still be of equal or nicer quality and grade as the item you see in the images here.

Very Fine translates to a grade in which generally a clear separation between a flattened cheek and jaw are present. Additionally, usually all of the lines in the wheat stalks are visible.

As a seller I believe in full disclosure by way of a detailed description and large, clear photographs when warranted, but many less expensive and bulk items make more sense to carry with 'sample' photographs rather than photographing each individual lot sold. For that reason, if the description above specifies that a stock image is used, be aware that the items you will receive are in like kind to the images provided, but WILL NOT be the exact same items.
