From the July 2009 issue of Coinage Magazine, I found this interesting list of the 10 most wanted Lincoln Pennies.
1. 1909-S VDB (Don't we all want one!?)
2. 1914-D (Third lowest mintage of all wheat cents)
3. 1922 Plain (Minted in Denver, some were struck with a very light D or no visable D at all, and these are refered to as 1922 "Plain")
4. 1924-D (Second lowest mintage of all wheat cents)
5. 1931-D (Low mintage due to the depression, no initial hoarding at release, so mint pieces are at a premium)
6. 1943 Copper - ("King of Error Coin", instead of the steel strike famous in 1943, a rare mint error made of bronze)
7. 1944 Steel (Struck on steel planchets left over from 1943)
8. 1955 Double Die (a misaligned obverse hub, creating a defective die strike)
9. 1960 Small Date (Changing of the decade meant changing the last 2 digits of the date, which were initially smaller until corrected in later runs)
10. 1990 No S Proof (Made for proof sets bearing the S mint mark, the mint mark is missing on these)
