After a week that included surgery (I’m fine… just healing), there are two issues that dominated my Inbox: my commentary about the CCAC Blueprint Report and more on electronic publishing. I will discuss these at another time following research I am doing.
In the mean time, I am happy to report that I found 2011 coins in change. As I was searching my wife’s change looking for something interesting, I found three 2011 Lincoln Cents! These three very bright, red, well struck examples with Victor David Brenner’s portrait of Abraham Lincoln, our 16th president, and the Union Shield designed by Lyndall Bass and engraved by Joseph Menna.
This is the first time in a few years that I have seen new coins this early in the year. What would really make this more exciting if these were Denver minted coins. Hopefully, we can find these in the D.C. area soon!
