A Lincoln commemorative sellout seems possible with the numbers rising by a combined 100,000 this week. Another jump of that magnitude next week and there will be few left outside of the projected special set.
It is a good thing that sales numbers for the second 2009 Lincoln cent roll set are available this week, because otherwise things are kind of summertime sleepy – and the calendar says it is not even summer yet.
The Lincoln Coin and Chronicles Set arrives this week with a sellout number of 51,000. That’s 1,000 over the maximum allowed, but not to worry. That will be whittled back to the 50,000 by the time all credit card and other problems are worked through.
There is more space to write in this week because the list of mintages of last year’s proof and uncirculated gold, silver and platinum collector versions of the American Eagle coinage and the proof and uncirculated gold collector versions of the Buffalo coinage have been removed.
