US Lincoln Kennedy Penny  1959 to 1980
US Lincoln Kennedy Penny 1959 to 1980

It turns out an eager entrepreneur discovered several compelling similarities between presidents John F. Kennedy and Abraham Lincoln. Both were assassinated, for instance. In the 1970s the entrepreneur stamped regular one cent coins with a crude image of JFK and sold them, usually with an 'official commemorative' card, for a few dollars each. If you look on eBay, you can still find these traded for the same few dollars each. The penny itself, of course, is worth one penny. The card might be a collector's item by now.
