I love em too.
That's much better than my Lincoln matte proof, which was sent November 14 by registered mail, from 30 miles away, and has been listed as "In Transit, Arriving Late" ever since. That's frustrating because it is by far the most I ever spent on a coin, and now I don't have the money or the coin. I can't even buy a different one.
I always wanted a coin that showed the details of the Flying Eagle cent in sharp detail. Well, this is not a coin, but it is much cheaper than what a real coin would be. It's a Dan Carr overstrike on an actual Flying Eagle. It works for me, but I am not a purist about these little metallic discs. It is just what I wanted, but better.
Same reason I bought one too.
I'm still working with a 2010.
Quoting myself and fulfilling my commitment above, here they are . . . . .
I’ve only ever bought one- the 2012 edition.
Sorry. Grant is still the enemy in my book.
With a mintage of only 1733 coins, it is still priced less than the 1909-S VDB, with 484,000 minted. At the time Kevin Flynn's book Lincoln Cent Matte Proofs was published in 2009, he said only 488 had been graded. The fate of the others is unknown.
With direct lighting, both sides are very, very blue. This photo can only hint at that, due to reflections off the plastic slab obliterating the coin image.
