I have been scooping up EVERYTHING associated with Lincoln’s bicentennial. I was VERY lucky to acquire a Lincoln Chronicle Set. They FLEW out the Mint door like rockets. Trust me this set is an a future money maker! Hold onto it!!! Low mintage and a ONE TIME mintage
makes it valuable. The silver Lincoln proof dollars were a hint of things to come. They disappeared quick! Good luck to all of you. The secondary market is already making a profit on this set. It only goes UP from here!

It is limited to 50,000, just remember you can get the coins without this set. Lincoln dollar proof around $50-60 and proof pennies $10. It is a nice set but $100 dollars for the packaging seems a bit high. I sold mine for $160, since I have the Lincoln dollar proof and penny proofs already.
