Best Answer

These are ordinary Lincoln Cents that a private company stamped with a rather crude portrait of John Kennedy. They were sold for about $1 glued to a card that listed several "amazing" similarities between the two assassinated Presidents. Like Lincoln was shot in the Ford Theater and Kennedy in a car built by the Ford Motor Co (a Lincoln). Kennedy had a secretary named Lincoln and Lincoln had a secretary named Kennedy. About the only similarity listed that is 100% accurate is that both were succeeded by a Vice President named Johnson.
