The third of twelve coins that I had imaged by Mark Goodman in late 2021
Entry posted by Coinbuf ·
Ok instalment 3 of 12, I have already posted this coin once or twice but just for the sake of completeness I'll add a journal entry for this one too. I am a long time dedicated Lincoln collector and love the coin/series partly as I like the original wheatie design, but mostly for the historical significance of President Lincoln. I own many books written about him and enjoy learning about him, visiting the Ford theater the first time I went to DC was a real thrill for me.
While most of my collection is focused on high grade registry quality red and red/brown coins I do enjoy rich lustrous brown coins like this. In some ways the details of the design are almost even more highlighted on coins like this vs full red examples. As many of you may know there has been much discussion in the collecting world dedicated to the blue toned Lincolns and IHC's, much of that discussion about the origins and originality of the blue color. While I know that blue on copper coins can be created it is my belief that it can happen naturally also, and in my opinion this is one of those original coins.
