    My parents bought a bunch of these from a local artist several years ago and gave them to me. I had forgotten all about them until I was cleaning up my coin desk this evening. Each one is struck on a zinc planchet, the same size and weight of a Lincoln cent. The entire Gettysburg Address was then laser engraved in the profile of Lincoln's bust. Kinda cool. Thanks for looking :D

    Very nice! With very minimal use for the Lincoln cent in circulation, I've heard you can sand the back off of a modern Lincoln cent, and produce a makeshift battery. But, this is a much better use!
