Obverse

Victor David Brenner

The designer of this coin, Victor David Brenner, was a talented artist of the time and did a very wonderful thing for numismatics: Design the LINCOLN CENT. This man's initials, in 1909, were found at the bottom of the reverse, but was later removed and was not restored until 1918, where it was put at the truncation of the bust. Also, Lincoln's hair in real life was straight and wavy, but Brenner made it curled and twisted to give the assasinated President Lincoln a more "appealing" look. The obverse has the words "IN GOD WE TRUST" at the very top, the date to the right, "LIBERTY" to the left, and Lincoln's bust in the center.

Charles Edward Barber was an amazing cheif engraver of the Mint for many years, and made a lot of contributions to the numismatic hobby. He even designed the Barber coin series! Barber engraved this coin, obverse and reverse, and did it very well.
