I like the Reverse Proof Shield
I do like how they look.

I have two. One from the 2018 Reverse Proof Set (50th Anniversary of San Francisco minting proofs) and another (2019-W) came as a bonus with the 2019 silver proof set from the Mint.

I kind alike The Informative Years reverse but I wish it was in copper, zinc tarnishes way too fast.

I don't understand why "Proof" pennies are not struck in copper

On the Galvanic Corrosion Scale, copper and zinc are one metal from being the furthest apart.

I was coming to post the log splitter was my fave, The proof coins for 2009 are copper as well as the uncirculated satin finish.

That's good to know about the 2009s

Too bad they didn't do the same thing for the 2018-S Reverse Proofs and 2019-W Reverse Proofs?

It will be interesting to see how they hold up

Correct. They put bronze (95% copper) cents in both the proof and uncirculated sets. There are also proof bronze cents in the 2009 Lincoln Coin & Chronicles set.

I agree. I suppose they do not want the potential for having coins struck on the wrong planchets. My solution is to KILL the CENT from circulation and tell Artazn to get bent. The Mint will then only create BRONZE NIFC cents and make them available in sets, bags, and rolls.
