Coin should be a nice lustrous, pretty much toning-free Brilliant Uncirculated or better FULL RED Lincoln Bicentennial Commemorative Cent with limited, if any spotting, taken from an original Brilliant Uncirculated bright RED bank roll. This is the SECOND of FOUR special new reverse designs depicting various scenes in Abraham Lincoln's life in recognition of the Bicentennial of Lincolnís birth and 100th anniversary of the first issuance of the Lincoln Cent. This reverse design depicts a teenage Abraham sitting on a log (that he presumably split with his axe) reading a book. In the fall of 1816, Thomas and Nancy Lincoln left Kentucky for southern Indiana, settling in Spencer County. As he grew older, young Abraham became skilled at using a plow and especially an axe. He could often be seen carrying a book along with his axe.
