Reference Item Number: set_1960

1960 was a time of change in United States small cents. The design on the reverse was changed to the Memorial in 1959, and the design of the new 1960 cents caused early fatigue on the dies that minted the coins, so it was changed to cause less stress on the dies. This created what we know as the 'large date' cent for the year. The change took place early in the year, thus the small date versions of this issue are more scarce than the large date issues. The images in this listing are stock images representative of the product and condition of the item being sold.

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.
