Recommendations incorporated...


without sacrificing what I like.


I certainly appreciate every comment I received, especially those that subscribe to the K.I.S.S. method, because those really made me think about what I was doing. All things considered I didn't just want another example of the same old thing. I wanted something that was unique to me and my set, so I decided to go with the spiced up version trying to incorporate most every comment from everyone.


That said, I present the final version that will be used throughout my Lincoln Memorial sets. Slight changes will be made for the Wheats, the Life of Lincoln, and the Shield cents.


Thanks for everything.

Adding a little black border down the sides and along the bottom also brought the coins more into the frame and having the color border. It really catches the eye and draws focus too where it needs to be on the coin. Keep it up Michael as you know good things are coming. You inspire me

Many improvements! Like the ovals for the pics and the layout of the cert info. Nice border too. You cropped a touch of the bottom of the obverse and should add a bit more of the obverse rim at the top. I'd also leave the tiniest amount of black space between the obverse/reverse images.


The picture border could go one size larger and/or one shade darker. Lastly, I prefer the date format as 1961-P. Just me, I like the -mintmark format.


Good work! It's a sweet layout that would look great on 8.5"x11" semi-gloss paper!

Fantastic layout, very professional looking! The only thing I might try is a small separation between the obverse and reverse picture of the coin, just my opinion!
