The original wheat-ear reverse was introduced over 100 years ago in 1909, but replaced by the Lincoln Memorial reverse in 1959, on the 50th anniversary of the series. Here's an opportunity to own 100 Wheaties from the 1940s and/or 1950s. Our Good or better quality saw a lot of circulation in those days, when a humble penny could still buy quite a few individual items. Wheatie cents are loaded with nostalgia. We'll choose dates and there will be duplicates.
