From this point on, if I come across any 1919 LWC's that do not have a mint mark, slap me upside the head and remind me to just say no.

Whassamatter? I like that date. Anything that old is special, even if you can't buy a boat with it.

That is why I want them to wait until after 2020 before they consider eliminating the Lincoln penny.

Yikes, that is quite a few! However, I do note that you have a ways to go if you are trying to corner the market: your stash represents about 0.00061% of the roughly 400 million minted.

Not trying to corner the market, that's for sure. Just want to have a few more mint marks, so I can make up starter sets for younger relatives about to join scouts so they can get their badge, and hopefully carry on their uncles hobby.

The 1919 three mint series was actually one of the larger runs. WW1 had ended, production was increasing and the US was ramping up to a pretty solid economy. Cents were a very necessary purchasing denomination back then, many small staple items and produce was 1-5 cents in cost. The "penny candy", The "nickelodeon" flash card videos, many items of produce, an apple was 2 cents, the cry for "Buddy can ya spare one thine dime?" later in the twenties was the cost of a good meal at a diner.

Actually the 1919 to 1922 period was one of recession. The "roaring 20s" didn't really kick in until the middle of the decade.

This is not the worst reason I have heard to keep the cent in circulation.
