Product Description

What do Milton Bradley and The Game of Life have to do with Abe Lincoln? Milton Bradley was a lithographer who produced an image of Abraham Lincoln during the 1860 presidential campaign that sold well. But then Abe did something no other President had done before – he grew a beard! This immediately rendered Bradley’s lithograph obsolete, and he turned to printing board games instead.

This 1918 coin is based on a Statue donated to the city of Springfield, Illinois for their 100th birthday. It features a 25 year old Abe Lincoln without his famous beard. Collectors prize these 90% silver half dollars as they bear one of the most attractive designs in over a century of commemorative coinage.
