Exciting Newp for me - Gold Lincoln
This token has been researched and written about by our own @CaptHenway (see link) ... and he was gracious enough to check out these pics and confirm for me that it is indeed an original, and not a restrike/copy. His name is on the slab after all .... confirmation straight from the source! Another reason why this forum is so cool. ⭐️
I have been searching for something interesting Lincoln-related for my Box of 20. So I considered some nice Lincoln cents, various medals and tokens. No shortage of Lincoln items to ponder...
Despite its small size, this piece really caught my eye for its simple yet elegant design, and the fact that it’s gold and closing in on its 100 year anniversary. And it happens to be the Top Pop of only six graded by PCGS - there are also three 62’s and two 65’s.
I usually don’t post before it’s in-hand (knock wood)— but what the heck it’s Sunday and I enjoyed a couple of whiskey drams, so here we are..... Always fun to share with you fellow coin heads. 🥃
