In order to help, I need some help.

I need some volunteers and they need to be YN who are very young(under 12) that wish to start a Lincoln Cent collection. I have 26 decent, no culls, wheat cents, a few uncirculated, most high XF and a few fine or so that I no longer need and don't wish to aggravate myself with ebay. If I can come up with a list of 5 or more YN that so fit the need, I will select one by drawing and send them these items which would be a nice beginning to fuel their Lincoln's. Below are some photos of the wheat cents.

    I love the idea! Good luck on the fun mission!

    I am a newer collector (started April 2020), and I primarily focus on U.S. Half Cents and Type Coins. Early copper is my favorite.

    I will suggest an edit to the thread title and add something about requesting YN (<12) as it might help someone find the thread that they might otherwise skip. We don't read them all (or do we). :)

    Why not just find one interested YN to give them to? Seems like a lot of extra effort to find five YNs and disappoint four of them when they lose the drawing.

    Edit: For the record, I fully support OP’s intent and sentiment.

    Nothing is as expensive as free money.

    Obviously, I don't know anyone and therefore am reaching out to find a YN. Rather than just offering one the opportunity I'm offering as many as the forum can offer. In this world of 10th place trophy's perhaps it would be better if 26 YN's were found, I could give each of them one.

    It appears this is going somewhere I did not intend it to go. So please do not respond to this post. Should you know a YN, just pm me. I won't be following it any longer so I won't know unless you pm me.

    Maybe try your luck on CoinTalk that may have more YNs versus here?

    @jesbroken... Very nice gesture.... I don't have any YN's around at this time.. Though my nephew has a couple that could become interested... in a few years, like ten.. ;) Cheers, RickO
