Lincoln Road Show Volume 1—home for the holidays

This project aims to encourage correspondence between members and play.

Sign up to receive and send forward a Whitman 9004 around the country and fill it with Lincoln cents that you don’t love because of their condition; your damaged, cleaned, worn orphans from as many forum members and states as possible. Singularly these coins are unremarkable, Let’s put them together and create something different.

I urge you to participate. Please post dubious remarks in the thread that announces the project that I posted earlier “Proposal for a forum project”. This thread is for volunteers to post the photos and members’ to post their wit.

Edit: Oct 23— James Zykoski added the first coin to the folder a few days before he died. We decided to give the folder to his grandson whom James introduced to collecting coins. Sign up to one of the last dozen pockets.

    Comment in this thread to volunteer to receive the folder and add a cent.

    Jzyskowski - 1919 S - from his grandfather, this cent is too nice for this. Colorado

    Tibor - 1909 P, 1914 P - Tennessee

    Fraz - 1909S, 1914 D - from an old Dansco folder on eBay - North Carolina

    I added the 2019 W in the 1909 S VDB pock as a small consolation for the person who fulls that slot with the SVDB.

    Up next:

    @Conshyboy
    @WaterSport
    @emeraldATV
    @pcgscacgold
    @Tom147

    If no one gets in line at this point, I wiil pay postage to send it back to me and I’ll return your coins on my dime.

    It’s a sacrifice. Though, I would waste this money ordering rounds if we met. Thank you for helping,

    You can add me to the list Craig, I don't have any old cents that i'm aware of but I could look through my change jar or find something at ANA by the time the album makes it to me.

  • FrazFraz Posts: 1,555 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Thank you, Dan. Will do. I wish that I could empty a cup with you all in Pittsburg.. I want to jump in the camper and roll that way, but it won’t happen.

    Conshyboy got it today.

    Same here. Looking forward to receiving the album. Considering picking up a slabbed Lincoln at the ANA and breaking it out just to put a nice shiny one in there. I've got a couple thousand circ. wheats already but I thought a MS Lincoln would be nice.

    I cursed Spectrum, Moderator, the guy who blocks me, and rogue bots for the hell through which I put myself the last two nights getting this page up. The modem held on to the very end, loading every bloody packet. I woke up, saw twenty-five comments, and felt like Sally Fields at the 1985 Oscar Awards.

    @Conshyboy — metal detection finds never occurred to me. Good call; the kind of surprise entry I hope that makes this interesting.

    Not sure if the warden will allow it but add me to the list!🤣😂

    @Conshyboy — Yes, he messaged me that he got it. (It would be better to post here than to me.)

  • pcgscacgoldpcgscacgold Posts: 2,595 ✭✭✭✭✭

    The book of Lincolns will be on it's way to me next week. I should be able to find a few holes to fill. I already have Tom147's info and will update when it is sent on it's way.

  • ChrisH821ChrisH821 Posts: 6,282 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Please count me in on this too. I'm sure I have some that can fill holes.

    A Question: Why did you decide on the folder rather than a Whitman classic album? In the folder the coins are relatively unprotected and can fall out, additionally, once the 09-S VDB is populated no one will be able to tell that it is an 09-S VDB since only one side will be visible.

    Collector, occasional seller

  • Namvet69Namvet69 Posts: 8,598 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Oh boy! Step by step, Abe's on the move.

    Thanks.
    I did not think of much about it since that one was here. If I had I would have thought that it was too good for the quality of coins going in. Falling out did not occur to me. Shipping costs did matter; the Whitman may cost double.

    SVDB orientation? I hope that that is a problem that we get to solve. Put it in backwards?

    I have an ideal finish for it, but this is not mine, I’ll never see it again. This belongs to the people. I hope that it generates some chuckles among us. I do enjoy our correspondence. Start scheming for semi-keys, I have.
