All about Lincoln!

Lincoln, what a fabulous name!! Of course, anything Lincoln is taken from the name of our 16th president, Abraham Lincoln! Did you remember that next month, February 12th, is his birthday? We don't celebrate that anymore, just President's Day. I remember celebrating both Abraham Lincoln's and George Washington's birthdays. Now we don't pay much attention to those days, I'm afraid.

In thinking about this, I started poking around to see what I could find about "Lincoln" listed on!! Wow!!

This beautiful 1934 Lincoln Convertible is listed by GRGAuction!

This collectable New York Herald Front Page LINCOLN ASSASINATION from BandLeader is a wonderful piece of history, suitable for framing!

If you are a penney collector, this LINCOLN PENNEY COLLECTION 1941-1969 from NorthEastEagle will give you a great start!

If you like old postcards, this is a wonderful Vintage Postcard Post Office Sq. Lincoln NB Trolly 1910 from ARFive.
