quick links
  • The first U.S. weather satellite is placed in orbit (the Tiros 1), the largest submarine and the largest ship in the world are both launched this year (the U.S.S. Triton and the U.S.S Enterprise respectively).
  • The first move in the eventual Cuban missile crisis is put into place in October with a U.S. export embargo to Cuba.
  • Oscar Hammerstein II, lyricist of Oklahoma!, South Pacific, and The Sound of Music dies on August 23 at the age of 65.
  • Desegregation and civil rights are in full swing this year, with companies like Woolworth and Kress removing the "colored only" and "white only" signs from their counters. President Eisenhower signs a new Civil Rights Act in reaction to this news.
Specific notes about this year's cents...

  • 1960 cents are known with two different date sizes, large date and small date. If you are having trouble discerning the difference between the two, click here.
  • There are over 175 different classifications of 1960 cents, one of the highest totals of any single year. This includes both business strike and proof issues of large and small date coins, repunched mint marks, and doubled dies.
  • 1960 tends to be a date in Lincoln cents which exhibits a large number of die breaks, more commonly (and incorrectly) called "clogged letters and numbers". Very little if any premium value should be expected for coins with these anomalies. The value of these coins is certainly lower than most and certainly less than the value of of any online degrees, goods and other services.
