I find a nice one every now and then that has all of its original luster and was wondering if there is collectors that buy these coins. This one isn't as nice as some of them but just a pic to get the conversation started.

I use them for hole fillers. Pretty cool color. I think I have about two dozen.

probably young or new collectors buy them to start a whitman or dansco, other than that copper value I think

I enjoy hunting for those more than purchasing them, but I am sure that somebody would buy it. I don't think it would be worth a lot.

Ask your local dealer or take them to a show and see what kind of offers you get. They could be worth 5 to 15 cents each -- but I'm no expert so I could be wrong.

Found this one in my pocket last week. Almost let it go as a zinc without checking date. Nothing special but fun to find. Makes me wonder where it's been for over 50 years.

A little off topic, but there is something about that decade of LMC that I like. Can't really pin it down, maybe the high profile of the coins, maybe the history of the 60's in general.

So much happened during that time that touched and impacted so many Americans and the good ol' US of A.

I don't hoard the coppers, but I keep filling up a cup of the 60s and then roll em and store em. 60s only, and found S mm.

I do to I found one from 1959 like that I mean the books says in ms65 the ones from 60 to 65 or worth about 10 each but who is going to pay that much for them I love finding these coins because its like they can be there in circulation for 50 years and still look that nice.

The higher profile on the earlier Lincoln Memorial Cents is definitely something that always attracts me to them. I can always spot a 1960s LMC in my change without reading the date.

Probably not.
And it wouldn't be practical to keep sending ones off to the grading company to get them graded and slabbed. Too expensive to do that.
Therefore.....it's just a nice very common coin for your folder or album or coin tube.
In nice condition....they're not that rare either. I too, have found MANY of these in the '60's in Gem Brilliant condition too...still only worth a Cent !
One time, in a $25.00 Cent box, I found almost a whole roll of 1960 D's in INCREDIBLE SHAPE !
I HAD to keep them......

You never know what could happen on Epay....but I still doubt that a "raw" 1960-D Lincoln in any high MS "opinion" grade would ever be worth your efforts.
Even whole rolls of them......prolly not that profitable. They're still just TOO COMMON !

I wondered if any one else had that same 'attraction'.

Check out the difference between 1968 and 1969 cents. Even though they changed the reverse in 1959, they didn't re-cut the master hub for the obverse until 1969. In the intervening years there is little detail in the bust, and it has a blobby appearance, even though it's attractive because of the high relief. From 1969 through the 1974 large date, the details were really sharp, and I like this period the best. Then when they were pondering a switch to aluminum, they ruined the details with the 1974 small date. It that it remained pretty crappy until the 90s when some of the detail returned, but all the relief was gone.

Even the small date 60-D's are a keeper in my book even though it doesn't carry the value a regular 60 small date does. They're still just as tough to locate in nice shape.

This reminds me of the new ATB quarters with the restored obverse that replaced the crazy detailed "spaghetti hair" (which had altered my perception). I will trade (some) detail for (higher) relief.

I have to agree. I said I liked the "earlier" LMC, knowing that some of the 1970's were part of this range. I could not remember when the cutoff was, but 1974 makes sense. I suppose the lack of detail is part of the reason why the 1960's cents stand out to me more.

IMO, 1969 is the obvious date for a type set example for copper memorial cents. It's got the fresh new hub, it's a historically significant year in the US, and even the sequence of digits in the date itself 969 is visually interesting.
