This week marks the 150th anniversary of the assassination and death of President Abraham Lincoln. After many unsuccessful attempts at politics, he finally reached the pinnacle and became President at perhaps the most tumultuous and bloody period in our history.
The Civil War often pitted brother against brother, father against son, and made enemies of what were once best friends. Hundreds of thousands of lives were lost during these years of battle and bloodshed. The Union was preserved, but, at a very high cost.
Lincoln is memorialized on many coins, medals, and tokens, most notably on our one cent coins which is one of the most collected series today.
Check out our selection of Lincoln cents as well as the many other new purchases we acquired on our website www.coinbuys.com.
