lincoln makes cents

Well, congratulations Tuesday readers — more Lincoln trivia!

Bona fide hottie Victor David Brenner used this photograph of Lincoln, taken by Anthony Berger to create the penny in 1909. Teddy Roosevelt had selected the design for Lincoln’s 100th birthday anniversary.

I was interviewed for a radio show on Lincoln’s 200th birthday, so I think we know who the real winner is (though Brenner’s still a babe).
