I no longer pick up memorial cents up off the ground when I see them, but I will pocket it if it is a wheatie.

aside from the very old dates & mintmarks on the obverse, the lettering & stylized wheat ears on the Wheat cent reverse is what I dig about the coin, kind of reminds me of the illustrations of Alphonse Mucha or Maxfield Parrish.

the LMC bores me.

it is seldom that a newer design is better than an older design, especially with cents. Today's reverses are a cheesy insult to the original design of Victor David Brenner. So there.

Agree! That's why I wish the Indian Head cent were a part of this poll, if we're pitting cents against cents, bring in the oldies

That aside, wheatie all the way

I like the memorial reverse. If you take the value aspect out of the question, the memorial reverse is a better design. I don't like the shield, btw.
