Two-roll sets of the Lincoln Presidency cent design have gone on sale and in less than a week the Mint has sold 153,427 of them. That’s a strong start, but it isn’t strong enough to predict a sellout or at least reach the 300,000 mark that was called a sellout for the second design. The third design is still on the market and selling additional small quantities from week to week. Can the fourth design at least match the current sales number for the third design, which is 248,246? There are probably good odds of that.
