LINCOLN WHEAT EARS REVERSE: 1909-1958:
The following was taken from the 2010 "Official Red Book Guide of United States Coins, by Whitman Publishing" considered to be the "Bible" of U.S. coins.
Victor D. Brenner designed this cent, which was issued to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln's birth. The designer's initials (V.D.B) appear on the reverse of a limited quantity of cents of 1909. The initials were restored, in 1918, to the obverse side on Lincoln's shoulder. The Lincoln type was the first cent to have the motto IN GOD WE TRUST.
Composition-1909-1942: weight 3.11 grams, .950 copper, .050 tin and zinc, plain edge, mints: Philadelphia, Denver, and San Francisco.
Owing to a shortage of copper during the critical war year 1943, the Treasury Department resorted to the use of zinc-coated steel for cents. No bronze cents were officially issued in 1943. A few specimens struck on the bronze planchets by error are known to exist. Through a similar error, a few of the 1944 cents were struck on steel planchets.
Composition-1943: Weight 2.70 grams, steel coated with zinc.
Cartridge cases were salvaged for coinage of 1944 through 1946. Although the color was slightly different for Uncirculated coins, they proved satisfactory in every respect.
Composition-1944-1946: Weight, 3.11 grams, .950 copper, .050 zinc.
Composition-1947-1958: Weight, 3.11 grams, .950 copper, .050 tin and zinc.
