Well, tomorrow is Lincoln's Birthday, and also my son's
Being that we are snowed in, and have been for awhile (I can still get out and drive around but most of the stores have been closed for the snow, off and on (mostly closed), for the last week, I may just pull out a cent and give it to him...he already knows the connection
But, at 17 now, I think he wants something else for a present than pocket change.... LOL
Back in his elementary school days, on his birthday, I would take a different type of coin, everywhere, make a self slab label special, include some info of the coin on the back for some, make sure the coin had some significance to him/the year/his classmates/etc, put them in the self slab, and hand them out at his birthday parties or in class.
I recall at least 3 kids becoming interested in coins back then from this. 2 for US coins and 1 for all, including world, coins (her dad traveled as well and she started asking him to bring her coins back from his travels.
This was one of them I did (just a quick job on it, as, when shrunk and printed out on a small coin slab (side of old small anacs holders), small details don't really show. Due to certain folks here, I haven't posted many pics of him and I won't post recent ones, but given this is over 10+ years old, it should be ok
I've been told I tolerate fools poorly...that may explain things if I have a problem with you. Current ebay items - Nothing at the moment
