LINCOLN'S PORTRAIT IN 2,400 PENNIES

[Tom Fort forwarded this item from The New York Times.
-Editor]

Finally, a way to get rid of some of those pennies!
Jeff Haber and his teen son Danny used $24 worth to
make a portrait of -- who else? -- Abraham Lincoln.

Inspired by a similar portrait that Jeff Haber had
seen in a Florida museum, the effort took nearly two
months of gluing pennies in the right positions to
make the image.

They used pennies both for the obvious symbolism and
because pennies can be found in different shades,
thanks to wear and tear.

The portrait, the third one they've done, is being
donated to Danny Haber's high school.
