The matte proofs can like really nice. Nothing like seeing a full beard on Lincoln. I wouldn't mind some nice RBs with nice color. The later proofs are about as exciting as a Sacagawea.


For the 100th anniversary I'd love to see them change the freakin' design that has bored me to death and actually have a design that isn't bland.


MDWOODS had a really nice looking one at Long Beach. I believe it was a 1913 with blue toning on the obverse. Really nice. Maybe he can post a picture?

Superb coin, Michael. I really like the smokey look the coin has while retaining an ultra-smooth quality and seemingly lustrous surfaces. smile.gif


Here's my favorite proof Lincoln cent. I've shown it on the boards before, so, don't get bored with it. I have to thank the board member who sold it to me and the other board member who brokered the deal. The coin is in a PCGS PF65BN holder and yes it really does look like the image. cloud9.gif

Wow, I like that one TomB. It looks rather purple.


I've been collecting the middle proofs 1936-1942. I'd like to get into the early proofs, but there are a bit hard to find. I showed off some of my middle proofs at the FUN show in an educational display.


Here is my 1936 satin. It was the only proof lincoln cent the dealer had that day. The '36 satin is as hard to fins as the early proofs.
