Thank you so much for this insightful topic. Funny how I was not even a thought back then, I truly feel some sorrow that President McKinley had his life taken in this way.
I would love to find one of those flattened cents. That was an amazing idea to come up with. It makes the history more tangible for sure.

This is but one of many reasons that coins were stamped, to commemorate and remember an historic event and/or honor the memory of an admired individual. The beauty of these mangled coins lies in the history they convey.

.... likewise for me on your posts, westcoin! I just acquired a cool patent medicine c/s on a Two Cent Piece. It reminded me of you, and and I'll soon start a thread on it.
