Lincoln Cents are just to plain and just one of the many President face coins we have. Flying Eagles are just not really a good representative of USA. And that is why I voted for Indian cents.

Thanks for your vote and comments Carl. Currently the Indian Head cents are leading by just one vote.

It was a tough choice but the eagle is just so majestic.

If I had to choose, I'd pick FE first. Something majestic about the eagle. I like the IHC too. Maybe my low placement of the Lincoln cent is due to that fact that is all I've ever used in everyday life. "Absence makes the heart grow fonder."

good point squirrel... thats my rationale. I like the IHC the best because 1. I'm bored of Lincoln cents because its all I grew up with, so FE and IHC cents have a novelty to them.
2. I do prefer the IHC design- the portrait fills more of the space on the coin, and is more imposing. It represents Lady Liberty which, in my opinion, is one of the best ways to represent America (even though Lincoln is almost a unanimously revered president nowadays, he still was a political figure that did not represent everyone's interests at the time of his presidency).
The eagle is such a powerful image and symbol of America, but personally I think it looks a bit crowded where the wing tip extends in between the "OF" and "AMERICA" motto

Lincoln cents are getting left behind. In the Modern forum. Go figure.

Might be nice if the IHC had the Eagle as a reverse.

I'm amazed at how close this is.
The Flying Eagle And Indian Head cents are neck and neck.

I don't know if anyone else will be voting or not,
but the Indian Head cent looks to be the winner by 3 votes.

I am sitting on the fence. I like the Wheat reverse better than the IHC reverse. So can we mix and match?

The Flying Eagle cent has just overtaken The Indian Head cent by just one vote.
I'm amazed at how close these two designs are in the voting.
