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
