    All heads up, facing the same way. I threw in some foreign coins, errors, altered coins, some counterfeits, Indian Head Cents, counterstamp cents, a Flying Eagle cent, 1943 steel cents, and a couple tokens.

    What do you guys think?

    Nice floor. Any significance to the 1943?

    Actually, I am not in the trades. I am a History teacher. Just a very patient man who is good at Math. But I will take that as a huge compliment.

    I had no template to help. I literally created my own. Definitely unique!

    Just the steel cents. I wanted to put everything found on a Lincoln cent and I had to pick a date, so I figured it would be cool to do 1943 and use the steel pennies to make the date.

    Will you grout when you are finished laying the coins? If so, what color will you choose? That is a really tough task and I admire your patience. Nice idea.

    Looks like that Flying Eagle could be a trip hazard as think as it is. This looks like great fun.

    It was meant as a compliment, every bit of it. Attention to detail is all over that, well done friend.

    Probably black grout and then epoxy

    Will the epoxy prevent the shiny BU ones from turning red/brown over time? That's an amazing work of art!!!

    But I see a reverse (2 rows above IHC)! LOLOLOL. You should ask your visitors to find all the non-standard ones.

    I would have suggested black, but I did not want to interfere. What did you use as a bonding medium for the coins?

    Spackle or any joint compound will do the trick.
