Occoindealer's 1958-d/d/d Lincoln Cent 1c, Rpm-1, Pci Au

This is Occoindealer's 1958-d/d/d Lincoln Cent 1c, Rpm-1, Pci Au.

On February 12, 1959, a revised reverse design was introduced as part of the 150th anniversary of Lincoln's birth. No formal competition was held. Frank Gasparro, then Assistant Engraver at the Philadelphia Mint, prepared the winning entry, selected from a group of 23 models that the engraving staff at the Mint had been asked to present for consideration.

Again, only the approval of the Secretary of the Treasury was necessary to make the change because the design had been in use for more than the required 25 years.
