I'm an experienced coin collector, going on twenty years now, and I recently purchased this item because this is the first I have seen detailing such diversity of the Lincoln wheat cent metals used in manufacturing during this era through demonstrating their color variation. Unfortunately, the different colors shown here depicting the cents' absence or addition of different metal mixtures is NOT what you will receive! I was extremely disappointed when the coins I received are not at all five distinct colors as shown due to the separate metal mixtures used in production. All of the coins are poorly chosen, even heavily damaged, sharing the same color throughout all except for 1943, of course, when the one-cent piece was minted using steel. Only an inexperienced coin collector or one who is tolerant of deceptive techniques such as Photoshop would be satisfied with this item. It looks nothing at all like the items description or photograph. I highly recommend against purchasing this item. It is deceptive, poorly made, carelessly thrown together, and not worth the wheat cents it carries, much less the money you will be out of once you waste it on this dreadful display. If this is the lack of quality one can come to expect from the Franklin Mint, then expect me to shop elsewhere.
