These "Lincoln Facing Kennedy" pennies were made by private companies -- mostly in the 1970's -- that took a normal penny and stamped a portrait of President Kennedy facing President Lincoln on the front of the coin. They were normally attached to some kind of card that listed the "Astonishing Coincidences" between the two presidents. The card was usually stamped with a company name & address, and they were often given out as an advertising gimmick by small businesses to attract customers. They sell for a dollar or two if they are attached the the card that lists the "Astonishing Coincidences" between the two presidents. Without the card, maybe a quarter.

Most of the "amazing coincidences" are especially amazing because they stretch history more than a little bit.
