There's probably no man in history I admire more than Abraham Lincoln. Just trying to capture him once again.

In honor of his 203rd birthday, I have the great honor of telling you that this is one of, if not the, best portrait of the man on Deviantart. Thank you for making it.

I seem to remember a poll from some years ago, wherein people were asked, "if you could meet anyone in history, who would it be?"
The top two responses were Jesus of Nazareth and Abraham Lincoln.
Benjamin Franklin gets his face on the hundred-dollar bill, Andrew Jackson on the twenty, but Lincoln only rates a five? Oh, yeah--he got the penny too. That makes up for it.

Or perhaps fives are printed/used more than hundreds and twenties and therefore his note is seen more than Jackson's and Franklin's? I don't actually know for sure.

If you ask me, Jefferson is the one who really gets the shaft. Who uses two-dollar bills anymore? Or maybe being exceedingly rare should be considered an honor in and of itself?

Well, I'll give you that. Frequency of circulation counts, though I'd rather see a direct equation of value with the man. If that makes any sense.
It would've been interesting to sit in on the discussions of who would be on what bill, and why.
I have a handful of two-dollar bills put away somewhere. Susan B. Anthony's profile is also secure. Out of sight, out of mind.
Jefferson's image had a brief revival with the re-design of the nickel, which is something at least.
I wanted to ask you: do you collect the dollar coins? Every so often a new one comes out. I haven't looked for any since the lovely Sacagawea coins of 2000. Today's offerings aren't nearly as fetching. Nobody uses them as currency, so perhaps they're valued as an investment. They are today's two-dollar bills, I suppose.
