ON THE ARCHE MEMORIAL LINCOLN MONUMENT

In response to Jeff Starck's note on the numismatics of the
Lincoln Highway, Brad Higgins writes: "I once lived about 1/2
mile from this spot in Chicago Heights, IL and my recollection
may be a bit hazy. This 'penny' is mounted on a pole and is a
mere 5' or so from the road on the SW corner of what was once
called the 'crossroads of the nation'. It is about 9" or so
in diameter and the pole is about 3-4' in height.  Years of
widening projects have left no trace of a fountain. When time
allows, I'll drive over there for a first time close-up
inspection. In the years I lived there, I never paid this
object a bit of notice."
