Lincoln Cent Plaster

Lincoln Cent Plaster

LAURA GARDIN FRASER (1889-1966) Incused plaster of proposed replacement for the reverse of the Lincoln cent.

10 1/2″ Diameter. Faded white plaster painted with copper color (as a Lincoln cent would appear).

Ex. Joseph Lepczyk auction of October 23-24, 1980, lot 489, price realized: $2,300.00

Mr. Lepczyk cataloged this piece as: Commemorative One Cent. Incused reverse model. With Oak Tree. Embedded notes on back. “July-27-1951/from July 951 Cast/FINAL.” Pencilled note “Circle enlarged for top of tree.” 10 1/2 inches.

Mrs. Fraser was a very accomplished artist. In addition to the many medallic works she did, Mrs. Fraser also designed several coins. They are as follows: 1921 Alabama Centennial half, 1922 Grant Memorial half and gold dollar, 1925 Fort Vancouver half, as well as the beautiful Oregon Trail half (1926-1939).

With 2009 being the 100th anniversary of the Lincoln cent design, and new reverse designs now showing up, this is a rare opportunity to acquire a true piece of Numismatic Americana.

Offered at: $10,500.00
