Commemorative Panel: "Lincoln Loses in Illinois State Race

C/W 1921 & 1922-D Lincoln Wheat Pennies + Historic Stamp

Recognition of Abe's run in 1832 for Illinois State legislature and LOSS in the election in Sangamon County.

Stamp:
Honors Lincoln's adopted home of Illinois in 1818 with a 50th anniversary stamp issued on his birthday on Feb 12, 1968.

Stamp features the winning design by George Barford, instructor in art at Illinois State University, from an art contest sponsored by the Illinois Sesquicentennial Commission.
This 6 cent stamp is in mint condition and sealed under an acrylic plate on panel.

Coins:
Two Lincoln wheat pennies: One 1921 (Philadelphia Minted) and a 1922 (Denver minted).

Both pennies are bronze composite pennies
Designed by Victor D. Brenner

Metal Composition: 95% Copper - 5% Tin and Zinc

Diameter: 19 mm

Mass / Weight: 3.11 grams

Note: All 1922 pennies (total of only 7,160,000) were minted in Denver and should have received a "D" mintmark.
Coin dies used to strike coins were being overworked and overused.
Some coins received a weak "D" mint mark and hence worth appx 20% more than standard strike.
We have been unable to determine if this 1922 penny is a weak or standard.
Estimated grade XF on 1922; VF on 1921.
Estimated combined coin value estimated appx $40 as a standard strike.
Could value over twice that (or appx $73 combined value) if coin grades as a "weak strike". 


Story of the election is on panel back.

Condition:
Grade listed is estimate only as coins in panel are ungraded.
We do not attach a specific grade to our coins because:
a) We're not experts on all coins we list
b) Grading is very subjective.
Use the photo gallery to make your assessment.

We combine shipping on multiple coin purchases.

 

Notes

 

1) Sold As-Is. Buyer (and Seller) protection through Pay Pal.

2) Photos are part of our description. Color images due to computer screen or browser settings may be slightly different. The actual product colors prevail.

3) Coin pictured is the actual one buyer will receive. Unless otherwise noted, coin is non-certified. We do not attach a grade to our coins because we are not a coin dealer nor experts on all coins we list, and grading is very subjective. We leave it up to you to grade the coin based on our photos. 
 
4) Should have a question please ask before bidding.  If you experience an issue with any purchase, please message us. Though we have no return provision (due to a few bad apples returning coins in different condition than the we originally shipped and didn't want to start "marking" coins), we do believe in providing excellent customer service.
 
5) We always ship orders within 24 hours of receipt of Pay Pal transfer.
