    That's fabulous! Is that an authentic Lincoln cent embedded in the upper left?

    Yes it is. Wish it had an S under the date. :)

    This one is not mine but I have the same plaque but have never imaged it. Can't find a place to hang it. It's about 28x22 inches. Never thought much about it's value until now. Heritage just sold one back in Aug. for $5000. Crazy money but Lincoln sells.

    Great plaques everyone. Here is one I picked up from Paul C. at a Baltimore show. Shipping was just too much so we arranged for me to pick it up when he got home.

    Bronzed cast iron.

    Paul is a great dealer. Fun to chat with. His book on Lincoln is really special.

    Those are some awesome plaques. I would remove some family pictures to put those up.

    Those should be displayed.

    If you want to read one of the best articles ever about the topic, you should read Leon Worden's article here:
    Link to Part 2: https://scvhistory.com/scvhistory/signal/coins/worden-coinage1207a.htm.

    I'm lucky enough to own the Norton photographs that Brenner borrowed to create the image on the plaque, medal, and cent along with the Norton family's copy of one of the plaques and medals. It's a fascinating story well worth the read.

    Not a plaque but worthy of this thread -- a picture from the article:

    I recall my wife saying “Where do you plan on hanging that” when I brought that plaque home. It ended up on the wall in my office. LOL
