    Hello Everyone!
    I am a new collector, and I am trying to gather as much information about coins as I can from more experienced collectors.:)
    ------------------------------I received this penny today in change. It appeared to be a normal, 2009 penny, but then I took a second look. On the reverse, there appeared to be a young man sitting on a log. Is this one of the presidents? Was this coin defaced by a private company? Is this coin part of a set? Thanks for the help!

    To commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Lincoln cent (which, in 1909, commemorated the 100th anniversary of Lincoln's birth), the Mint issued four special reverse designs in 2009. All cents minted in 2009 had one of these four designs.

    They are very common and you should be able to see them around a good bit !! But they are getting a little less common to see !!

    I think the "E" in United looks bent or something?

    Depending on where you are. I've seen four of them in change so far one log cabin, two rail spliter, and one Illinois statesman. And I've been watching for them for five years.
