The group Encased Collectors International has made available a 2009 encased Lincoln cent series.
The series is comprised of the four 2009 cents honoring Lincoln’s birthplace, formative years, professional life and presidency.
The obverse encasement bears the group’s name as well as its slogan, “Knowledge Through Fellowship.” The reverse encasement features the Lincoln quote, “Whatever you are, be a good one,” and a reproduction of his signature.
The four pieces in the series can be purchased individually for $3.99 each or as a group for $13.99.
