COLLECTORS URGED TO WRITE CONGRESS ABOUT THE LINCOLN CENT

Regarding Dick Johnson's suggestions for the 2009 Lincoln cents,
Howard Spindel writes: "I agree with Dick's comments that having
versions of the 2009 cent in precious metals would be something
special.

When U.S. Mint personnel were in Portland for release of the Oregon
quarter, I asked Gloria Eskridge (Associate Director, Sales and
Marketing) why the annual silver proof sets couldn't include silver
versions of the nickel and the cent, as it has always seemed strange
to me that those coins remain in base metals in a *silver* proof set.
Her answer was that the US Mint can not decide on its own the
metallic content of any coin - it requires Congressional legislation.
So, if anyone wants silver or gold 2009 cents, write your Congressman!"
